Do you ever eat something that you can’t seem to get it out of your mind because it just tasted so good? Well these bars that my friend Heidi made is that something for me. She made them about 6 months ago for a gathering we had at church and I just couldn’t get enough, funny how I hadn’t made them until now. I modified the peanut butter swirl bars by taking out some of sugar but they are still peanut buttery good with a nice amount of chocolate to keep you coming back for seconds or thirds :).
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Swirl Bars
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup softened butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
6 oz.or about 1 cup chocolate chips
Step 1: Put first four ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
Step 2: Add eggs one at a time and mix well, then add vanilla and mix.
Step 3: Add flour and baking powder and mix well.
Step 4: Spread peanut butter mixture in a 9 X 13 inch square pan, sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top.
Step 5: Bake in oven for 3 minutes then take out and with a butter knife run the knife through the middle and swirl the chocolate.
Step 6: Bake for 22 minutes at 350 degrees F.
When finished take out and cool completely before cutting into squares…if you can wait that long!
Hope you have a chance to try these, they’re delicious with a glass of milk too. Enjoy!
