> 1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury ™ Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
> 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
> 3/4 cup M&M's ™ milk chocolate candies
> 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
> 1/4 cup chopped cocktail peanuts


Heat oven to 350°F. Line 9-inch square pan with foil, allowing some to hang over sides of pan.
In large bowl, break cookie dough into small chunks. Stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and the remaining ingredients until well mixed. Press mixture in pan.
Bake 19 to 24 minutes or until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted 2 inches from side of pan comes out almost clean. Cool 30 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring until melted. Transfer melted chocolate to small resealable food-storage plastic bag; cut small corner off one end of bag, and drizzle on top of bars. Cool completely, about 3 hours, or until chocolate is set. Remove bars from pan; cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.
