Chocolate and peanut butter. Its like peas and carrots. Totally meant to be. These cookies bars are pretty much the best thing ever. I’m so happy every time I make them. Mike and I always take turns licking the spatula. Bon appetit!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars 

Makes 1 9×9 pan

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, at room temp
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 tspn vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 tspn baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chunks

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cream the peanut butter and butter together. Add the sugars and mix until combined well. Then add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and then gradually add it to the wet mixture. Add the chocolate and stir to combine.

Bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool completely before slicing into bars.

And yes I know this isn’t a traditional cookie… So sue me!

Happy Holidays!
