    Ingredients:

    Serves: 25

    Yield:

    9-inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Crust

    Filling

    Topping

    • 11 1/2 ounces high-quality milk chocolate chips
    • 6 tablespoons heavy cream

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with nonstick spray.
    2. 2
      For the crust, combine chocolate wafers, butter, and sugar in a food processor and pulse to combine until cookies are evenly crushed and combined with other ingredients.
    3. 3
      Press crust mixture firmly into the bottom of a prepared baking pan. Bake for 8 minutes, then set on a rack to cool completely.
    4. 4
      Make the filling by combining brown sugar, confectioners sugar, butter, peanut butter, and salt. Mix until just combined (do not whip). Put the bowl in the refrigerator.
    5. 5
      Make the ganache topping by combining the chocolate chips and cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in the microwave at medium power (50%) for 60-90 seconds. Stir until the bowl no longer feels warm. Continue heating at 15-30 second intervals, stirring until smooth and melted. Do not overheat!
    6. 6
      Spread about 1/4 cup of chocolate mixture evenly over cooled crust. Place pan in freezer until chocolate is set, about 5-10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Spread peanut butter mixture into even layer over chocolate. Give chocolate ganache a quick stir to smooth any lumps, then spread evenly over top of peanut butter layer.
    8. 8
      Cover pan with plastic wrap and place in freezer for 1 hour to set. When firm, use a sharp knife to cut into squares. Keep refrigerated and serve cool.
