Melt 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup butter together in a large microwave-safe liquid measuring cup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk in buttermilk and egg. Add to flour mixture; stir just until combined. Fold chocolate chips gently into batter; allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Make the peanut butter sauce by melting 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup butter together in a large microwave-safe liquid measuring cup in the microwave for 30 seconds. Whisk in confectioners’ sugar and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over low heat; coat with cooking spray. Pour in 1/3 cup batter; spread with the back of a spoon into a circle just over 1/4-inch thick. Sprinkle with candy-coated chocolate pieces. Cook until edges are set; 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate; top with peanut butter sauce and more chocolate candies.
