Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

When I was in high school, I started making these *amazing* peanut butter bars!!  This has been one of my favorite desserts for years!  Just for fun, I’m going to share this with you all today! 🙂

In a metal mixing bowl or sauce pan, melt on low heat

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup butter

Remove from heat when it is soft and add

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Place in a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350° (170°C) for 25 minutes (until slightly brown around the edges).


First, frost with 1 Tablespoon butter, powdered sugar (a cup or so?) and 3/4 tsp vanilla extract, plus a dribble of milk until the frosting can spread easily (It will dry so don’t worry about it being too runny. You don’t want a thick layer of frosting!)

Then, melt 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 1 tsp butter on very low heat until it has melted. Quickly spread chocolate onto the peanut butter bars. I usually use the back of the spoon to dab it on.

These are really yummy (though clearly not low calorie!).
