Golden Oreo Peanut Butter Bars

Oreo Peanut Butter BarsBar desserts are some of my favorite treats and such a great time saver. Rather than scooping or rolling out the individual cookies, you can just pour the ingredients into the pan, slice them up and be done. These Golden Oreo Peanut Butter Bars from Lauren's Latest are some of my favorite bars by far, and bonus: You don't even have to turn on your oven.

These great no-bake bars are sweet, but not overly so because of the saltiness of the peanut butter. Her recipe calls for the golden Oreos, but you can also mix things up sometimes and use the traditional chocolate ones as well.

4 tablespoons butter
16 whole Golden Oreos
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup powdered sugar
edible pearls or M&M’s, for garnish

Line an 8×8 square dish with foil, spray lightly with cooking spray and set aside.

For the crust, place all Oreos into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until crumbs have formed. Melt butter in microwave and stir into the Oreo crumbs. Press well into the bottom of the prepared dish. Refrigerate.

For the filling, place white chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter into a heat proof bowl. Microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring in between until chocolate chips and butter have melted into the peanut butter creating a smooth consistency.

Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. Spread over chilled crust, smooth the top and refrigerate until solid, at least 2 hours. {You could place in the freezer to speed things up.}

Remove entire pan of bars by peeling foil away from dish and lifting up. Cut into 24 squares and top edible pearls. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
