Gooey Cereal PB Cookie Bars w/Salted caramel

Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


This should be call death by cookie bar!! If you like sweet and gooey its a must try, but dont forget to add the salted caramel! That makes it!!
I was playing with a PB cookie mix to come up with this. I got a little crazy but it definatly was worth it!!!
I love the idea of taking short cuts with mixes.
