Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

February 1, 2012

What do you get when you combine homemade Peanut Butter Cups with Chocolate Chip Cookies??

You get fantastic Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut butter bars!

To make these, you  need to first whip up some cookie dough, you can use your favorite or use THIS recipe (minus the pb cups)  Just be sure to cut the recipe in half if you don’t want to have leftover cookie dough.

Press cookie dough into a 11X13″ pan lined with parchment paper

Bake for about 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 325 degrees or until the edges are golden brown and the middle is just set.

(Baking time may vary based on your oven)

Cool the cookie “slab”

Next you need to mix up the peanut butter layer…

You can find that recipe HERE

(3/4 cup smooth peanut butter, 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 tbsp graham cracker crumbs)

Now I was a little bit afraid of compressing my cookie base so I rolled the peanut butter mixture between 2 layers of parchment paper and then put it on top of the cookie base, gently pressing down to kind of even everything out!

Now pop it in the fridge and mix up the chocolate layer!

1 cup of chocolate chips plus 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter.  Heat it up until it’s all melted.

pour the chocolate on top of the peanut butter layer and smooth it all out with a spatula.  Return to the fridge until the chocolate layer has set up

(or if you’re really impatient, the freezer for about 10 minutes)

Slice into bars, share with friends!

If you’re not serving these right away, they’re best kept in the fridge!
