Peanut Butter Bars

May 18, 2012

You might think that you have seen this recipe before. A few months ago, I posted a recipe for Peanut Butter Cups on here. Two different recipes. The cups do not have to be baked. These bars do. The flavor profile is different, so have fun and try both. Peanut Butter Barspeanut butter bars Base - 2 3/4 C flour, 1 1/4 brown sugar, 1/4 C peanut butter, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 egg, 1 C butter (room temp), and 1 tsp. vanilla Topping - 1 C chocolate chips and 1/2 C peanut butter Mix together the base ingredients and press into a 15x10 pan ( make sure it is mixed well). Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Do not overbake! They will become too dry and crumbly. Cool for 5 ┬áminutes. Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients and spread on top of warm bars. Cool completely before cutting.
