Arrange 12 cookies on top and cover with about one-third of remaining peanut butter mixture. Repeat with two more layers of cookies and peanut butter mixture, ending with peanut butter mixture. Sprinkle Heath bar around top edge and refrigerate 5 hours to overnight. Remove pan side. Gently lift cake by the plastic wrap to remove it from the pan bottom and peel away plastic wrap.
