Chocolate chip peanut butter bars

chocolate chip peanut butter bars

This past week that I’ve been home I’ve found myself baking ALOT, anyone else? (STRESSED spelled backwards is DESSERTS am I right?) Yesterday I was craving something sweet and gooey to comfort my soul. I can’t think of anything that’s more comforting than peanut butter and chocolate so I got to work. These chocolate chip peanut butter bars quickly became a family favorite in our house and you most likely have all of the ingredients on hand.

Chocolate chip peanut butter bars

Ingredients :

  • 2 sticks of salted butter
  • 2/3 cups of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsps of vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 3 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of peanut butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease your baking dish (I used a 9×9).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and beat until combined. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Add in flour and baking soda mixing well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour 1/2 of the batter into your prepared baking dish.
  6. Dollop the peanut butter on top and swirl into the dough.
  7. Pour the remaining dough on top and spread evenly.
  8. Bake in oven for about 22-25 minutes (until you can insert a knife in the center and it comes out clean).
  9. Let cool before cutting.

I personally think these are best when they are warm and all melty in the middle with a nice cold glass of milk enjoyed by my lonesome curled up on the couch with a comfy blanket for all the feels.
