Foody Friday - Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

A new cookie recipe! To me heaven is full of cookies and I'll eat as many  as I want without getting fat...ha ha!

I love this recipe I found off of Two Peas and Their Pod.
I love it because you only use one mixing bowl, hence fewer dirty dishes and these are bars which means I'm not taking extra time to put individual cookies on a sheet. I didn't have peanut butter chips like the original recipe called for so I just doubled the peanut butter and it came out great.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

1 c. butter, at room temperature
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 325.

Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined.

Fold in peanut butter chips. Spread dough in a 9x13 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes. If bars are not done (due to using a different sized dish), bake for 5 minute increments. Let cool completely before slicing.


  1. Yum! I am going to make this today. I need a dessert to go with lunch.

  2. This is right up my husband's alley and I love making bars over cookies. So fast! I'll give it a try this weekend.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. And these look as though they would go nicely with a glass of red wine:)


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
