Feature: Gluten Free Candy Bar Cookies: Easy 3-Layer Bars

These Gluten Free Candy Bar Cookies are a fun way to use candy that is leftover from a holiday (like Halloween, Easter, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas).

And for those who eat only gluten free desserts … well, have at it!

You make the bars in 3 layers. First, you bake the cookie base.

Once that comes out of the oven, spread dollops of peanut butter on the top and then sprinkle the surface with chopped candy.

Spoiler alert: these cookies are best after you chill them in the fridge.But whether at room temperature or cold, they are hard to beat.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 25-30 minutes
Makes 24-36 bars
