Like many other teenagers I like to sleep and when I can I sleep as late as possible. Today I didn’t get up until after 1130 and with almost 12 hours of sleep I’m still tired. Therefore it has been a VERY lazy day. I stayed in my favorite PJs all afternoon until I was forced to change so we could go get some dinner. And because I had nothing better to do tonight i decided to bake something but because I was lazy I used a box mix, which I rarely do. I have tons of boxes mixes from my aunt that are sitting in my pantry so keeping on with the theme of the day I decided I would be lazy and use one of the box mixes.

I decided the box of No. Holds Bars looked appealing (as the box states they are luscious layers of sugar cookie and fudge brownie, topped with a decadent toffee-nut crumble) so I pulled them out and the other few ingredients that you need to make them. They are super easy but require a little bit of work to put them together but in the end…well you can’t have just one bar which typically means going back to cut yourself just ONE more LITTLE slice over and over. And for Addie Theis….Yes in fact I DID just make BARS, because I live in Minnesota and we don’t have cake šŸ˜‰

These bars start with a layer of sugar cookie dough.

Then comes a delicious layer of brownie batter.

This then gets sprinkled with a mixture of crunchy peanut butter (I did use creamy peanut butter once because I did not have any crunchy peanut butter on hand and it turned out just as delicious but I prefer the crunchy peanut butter) and powered sugar.I did have a slight issue with the powdered sugar tonight. It had a mind of its own and decided it wanted to explode all over my pants and the floor.

After sprinkling the peanut butter/powdered mixture a top the cookie dough and brownie batter you sprinkle it peanuts and toffee bits and then bake it at 350 for about 40 minutes.

And after baking:

I cut myself a slice of this straight from the oven and topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…a very dangerous combination as I now want to cover the entire pan of bars in ice cream bring it to my room and eat it….all of it…by myself, but I do have some self restraint.
