Nutty Chocolate Pretzel Bars
1 10-oz. can deluxe salted mixed nuts (coarsely chop Brazil nuts)
1 18-oz. pkg. refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 cup toffee bits
1-1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/3 cup butterscotch chips
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup coarsely chopped salted pretzels
1 oz. vanilla candy coating, chopped, or 2 tablespoons white vanilla chips
Heat oven to 375 degrees, and grease 13x9" pan. Spread nuts in bottom of pan. Cut cookie dough into 1/2" slices and distribute over nuts. With floured fingers, press dough to form a crust. Sprinkle toffee bits over crust and press in lightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes until light golden brown. Cool for 30 minutes.
Melt together chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter. Stir well until smooth. Fold in pretzels and spread evenly over crust.
Melt candy coating in microwave on low heat. Drizzle over bars. Chill 30 minutes until chocolate is set.
