You might think that you have seen this recipe before. A few months ago, I posted a recipe for Peanut Butter Cups on here. Two different recipes. The cups do not have to be baked. These bars do. The flavor profile is different, so have fun and try both.
Base – 2 3/4 C flour, 1 1/4 brown sugar, 1/4 C peanut butter, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 egg, 1 C butter (room temp), and 1 tsp. vanilla
Topping – 1 C chocolate chips and 1/2 C peanut butter
Mix together the base ingredients and press into a 15×10 pan ( make sure it is mixed well).
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Do not overbake! They will become too dry and crumbly.
Cool for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients and spread on top of warm bars.
Cool completely before cutting.
