Peanut Butter Candy Bar Squares

I found this recipe recently on one of my favorite food blogs to read, Bake or Break.  It is supposed to be made with leftover Halloween candy, but I have to admit that I went out and bought the candy just for this because they looked so good.  My picture doesn't look half as good as the ones that she has posted on her site, but I am sure that they taste just as good.  They were a huge  hit with my family and friends that ate them. I will definitely be filing this recipe away for the future.

1/2 cup butter, melted
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
