On Sunday I made peanut butter chocolate chip bars. After a relaxing Saturday, and largely conquering my cold, it was the perfect way to end my Sunday (and set our week up for success, i.e. good dessert!). After making so many cookies recently (see here, here, here and here) I decided to switch it up and make a dessert bar. Since peanut butter and chocolate is one of my favorite combinations, I decided on peanut butter chocolate bars and they did not disappoint! They were very quick and easy to make, quicker than cookies, and delicious!
Here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375 and grease a 13x9 pan. Mix together 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar and 1 jar of Jiff Peanut Butter (the smaller jar, not the family size). Once combined, add in 1 egg, 1 tbsp vanilla and 1/4 cup milk. Once those ingredients are mixed in, add in 1 1/4 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt and mix well. Finally, stir in a bag of chocolate chips. Bake 20-25 minutes, until the edges are brown.
Finally, enjoy! Perhaps with a glass of milk
