Chubby Hubby Bars

As you all know, I am on a search for my perfect baked good.  These were so good, try them, you won't be disappointed.  Next time, I think I'll actually make chocolate chip cookie dough and add the Reese's Mini cups and pretzels to it, and then mix together peanut butter chips and chocolate chips to make the topping.
