(But they DID make a MOUND of a wrapper MESS.)
So, to all those people out there obsessed with PB and chocolate, this one's for you. Oh, and this one: National Pie Day
Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars (I totally found this recipe on the back of a margarine package and had to try it. Thanks Land O'Lakes!)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 cup butter/margarine, softened
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons sugar
48 milk chocolate candy kisses
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pat dough into ungreased 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately press evenly spaced chocolate candies into warm bars. Cool completely. Cut into bars, cutting between candies.
Bake well and prosper!
