I got this from one of my best friends. She made them at a football party that we went to. They are super good and very easy to make!

Me and my brother were bored. So we sighned up for this website. They were so easy to make. He had so much fun. I want to open a backery when I'm older and this is one I'll add to my list. They are just like everyone said. Plus this is the first recipe I tried first starting this website. Read More

The flavor of this was really good. I was concerned at first because the dough had the consistency of cookies but it came out good. I'm only giving it 3 stars though because after following the directions to a "T" and baking at the suggested amount it was still doughy. After being in the oven for still another ten minutes they were more firmer though the bars that were in the middle still were a bit doughy and fell-apart. Other than that a pretty good recipe thanks! I think next time I'll make them in a bigger pan making them thinner and possibly a little crispier. Read More

One of my favorite dessert recipes. I like to cook this in a pie plate and once it cools, I cut it into wedges and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This is also good with peanut butter chips. Read More

AMAZING!!! I used 2 round cake pans so I could do half with white chocolate chips and half plain. Both ways are awesome! Tastes like a big peanut butter cookie....only better! Read More

These are amazing. I did a few things differently out of convenience... I used 1/4 cup (generous 1/4 cup) canola oil and 1/4 cup butter rather than a 1/2 cup butter. I also used dark brown sugar rather than light because that's all I had (I also used a bit less assuming that dark brown sugar may have a stronger taste?). I also used natural fresh peanut butter because it was cheaper! It is a also more moist and thin than regular creamy peanut butter. I also cooked the bars in a round glass pan becuase it didn't look like they would fill up a 9 x 13 very easily. I cooked them for 18 mintues to keep them on the softer side. They were soooo good. I will definitely make this again! It was also so fast because you throw everything in one bowl and just mix it. Read More

These were great. I made them without chocolate chips because I didn't have any on hand. They would have been even better with them. Instead a added a Peanut butter glaze from this site which worked out well. I love how cake like they were. I have made some before that end up being really dense, but these were very fluffy and moist. I will make these again and add the choc chips for sure. Read More

A one bowl recipe, very fast and easy to make & SO TASTY. So this recipe replaces my other peanut butter bar recipe and is now is my "Go-To" recipe for these bars. HELPFUL HINTS: When the recipe says to "fold chocolate chips into the batter" = STIR them in with a stiff spoon. And, to "pour batter into prepared dish" = SPREAD the dough in the pan because the "batter" is more like cookie dough, not like cake batter. And, I actually baked them for only 15 minutes. Soft & Yummy! Thank you :) Read More

These were a huge hit with my family. As they were baking in the oven the wonderful smell caused them to come into the kitchen to ask what I was making. I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out great. I would only suggest a change to the instructions of the recipe. As with any cookie or bar recipe I would suggest creaming the butter peanut butter and sugar first. Then mix in the egg and vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients then finally stir in the chocolate chips. SO easy and so delicious! Read More
