Milk Chocolate Frosting:
Stir first 4 ingredients together, add the prepackaged cookie mix. Grease/spray a 9x13 inch pan. Put batter into pan, spreading evenly.
TIP: if hard to do, dip/heat table spoon in hot water, smooth with back side of spoon.
Bake 350 degrees F for 12 minutes. It will appear not quite done, it will finish baking for a few minutes after removal.
While bars are baking, mix up the frosting. Stir together and then stir constantly on medium heat. Bring to bubbling boil 1 minute.
Let kettle of frosting cool in cold water basin under frosting for 2 minutes, STIRRING the whole time.
When it cools enough not to get burned with, quickly frost the bars. They should both be still warm. Let frosted bars cool. Then cut into squares and put away in tupperware. They keep fresh for a long time sealed in a container. I found that cutting 1 1/2 inch squares made for a nice little bar.

This sounds delicious and I'm eager to make it but please note that there is currently a recall on peanut butter because of salmonella poisoning. In other words, it's best to wait until we get the government go-ahead to buy peanut butter again. Keep in mind that many products like cookies, pastries and cereal may contain peanut butter so check the labels.
Since salmonella is killed when heated to 165F degrees, this recipe is probably safe (it's heated to 350F degrees). Still, it's better to be safe than sorry.
Here is a list of stories about it on the news. There is also a video.
