  • Slice off 1/3 the dough, creating 2 portions. Pat the bigger portion into the bottom of the prepared pan. Reserve the smaller portion for topping.

  • Combine peanut butter and vanilla extract in a bowl. Beat using an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Add confectioners' sugar slowly, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Add chocolate chips.

  • Drop spoonfuls of the peanut butter mixture onto the cookie dough in the baking pan and pat down to cover the dough. Crumble reserved dough into pebble-like chunks; drop over the peanut butter layer. Pat down slightly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 30 minutes. Let cool in the pan. Lift cookies out by the aluminum foil and cut into bars.
