I guess you could say- I haven’t exactly spent much time cooking in the kitchen since I came down with a nasty flu bug two days after Christmas. (Seriously-I should have bought stock in Campbell’s soup!) But, when hubby’s sweet tooth kicked in yesterday, I didn’t have the heart to tell him to go buy a candy bar-especially since he’s been such a trooper, by helping out with laundry and dishes!!

So….. I did what any grateful wife would do…..  I grabbed my arsenal of cookbooks, and scoured the many pages-praying for a recipe that not only called for ingredients I had on hand-but one that was quick and easy to make. (Of course-all hubby cared about was that the recipe involved dark chocolate-and LOTS of it!)

Twenty minutes later (and three cookbooks)-I FINALLY found a recipe that fit both our criteria!

With only seven ingredients-and a total time of 30 minutes to prep and bake-these Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Bars were so easy to make up-I hardly broke a sweat!!!

And hubby?  Well, let’s just say he didn’t wait until these gooey chocolate treats  had cooled down completely, before he gobbled them up!

Here’s the recipe-ENJOY!!!

Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Bars


1/2 cup butter (1 stick-melted)
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips +2 tablespoons


Preheat oven to 350.  Line an 8×8 baking pan with foil.  Spray foil with cooking spray.
Combine butter, peanut butter, egg and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Beat until smooth. Add vanilla.  Stir in flour-mixing until combined (Don’t over mix).  Stir in chocolate chips (except for the 2 tablespoons).  Pour into foil lined pan.  Sprinkle with remaining chips.  Bake for 20-25, or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.  Let bars cool completely before cutting.
Makes 12 bars.
Have an awesome Monday!!!
