  • In a medium bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla and peanut butter until smooth. Combine the flour and baking powder, then stir into the peanut butter mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Spread the dough out flat on the prepared pan.

  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops of the bars look dry. Cool in pan, then cut into squares.

Delicious. I used a glass 9x13, parchment paper on bottom and sprayed with pam. Baked about 25 minutes until top looked dry and toothpick was dry (although knife came out wet, it was perfect. You don't want to cook these all the way through). I reccomend 1 cup white, 1 cup packed brown sugar. I used butter. Use 1 1/4 c peanut butter, 1 1/2 tsp baking pwdr, 1 3/4 c chocolate chips.

This recipe was tasty but not exactly what I had in mind. Rather than a chewy blondie this one was more flaky. I too made this in a 9x13 pan and cookied it for about 20 minutes. I'd probably try a different recipe next time I was in the mood for blondies. Read More

Yum! This recipe didn't quite satisfy my craving for a peanut-buttery chocolate delight but it came pretty close. Instead of a 10x15 I used a 9x13 and sprayed it with Pam and it ended up taking about 25 minutes- but worth the wait. It was light in texture but heavy in the stomach-so be careful about taking seconds! I used smooth peanut butter and forgot the vanilla- but I still rate it. This is better served not right-from the oven. Read More

I'm giving these a 5 star because my friends though they were so good!! I told my friend about AR and she said she'd give them a 5 star so there ya go:) I thought these were really nice too but I did use: Butter instead of Marg 1/2 less flour & a lil less sugar (used 1/2 brown sugar instead of white). These were really really greasy (i guess from the PB??) that's one thing i didn't really like. And it seemed like they needed more of a peanut butter flavor to them. I will probably make these again though since they went over so well with my friends!! Read More

This recipe is yummy and simple to make but a little rich for my husband and me. As previous poster mentioned I made mine in a glass 9x13 and baked for about 30 minutes and also you really want to let this cool completely before trying to cut it. Read More

Excellent and easy recipe but very sweet. I used 3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter and added 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder. Thanks to other reviews I baked 25 minutes and they turned out perfectly. I might cut the sugar a bit next time but will definitely make again. Read More
