This recipe forms a rather stiff dough, you might have to press it in the pan. One time I put raisins in the batter by mistake, and my husband loved them that way. You can also omit the chocolate chips and have them plain if you wish.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Mix peanut butter, butter or margarine, and sugars until creamy. Stir in vanilla. Beat in eggs. Mix in flour. Stir in 3/4c chocolate chips. Spread dough into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. 2 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and sprinkle with the rest of the chocolate chips. Let stand 5 minutes and spread. Cool, and cut into bars.

  1. Wait a day then rate these bars. They were WAY better the next day! Changes made: spelt flour in place of wheat. I also used Skippy Natural Creamy Peanut butter (perhaps a "rounded" cup of it). They are very peanutbuttery; exactly what I was looking for.
  2. My husband went nuts over these bars! I followed the recipe exactly the first time and he and a friend went through the entire pan in a day and a half. I agree with other reviews that the peanut butter flavor could have been stronger but when I made them a second time I used - Read more ...
  3. These were very easy to mix up and bake. They came out chewy, like a brownie but a little denser, and extremely peanutty. I think the texture might be affected by what kind of peanut butter you use. I used old-fashioned creamy, the kind you stir. They would probably come out different with shelf-stable peanut - Read more ...
  4. These are so wonderful!! I doubled the batch for a church BBQ and baked on a cookie sheet for 25 minutes. I tasted one slightly warm with the chocolate still warm I am going to have a hard time giving them away. They are the best peanut butter bars I have ever had. Seriously my - Read more ...
  5. These are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, softening the butter and peanut butter in the microwave before adding the sugars and vanilla. These bars have a chewy, moist consistency, much like a brownie. I did leave out the chocolate chips, since we're not big chocolate fans, and I frosted with cream-cheese frosting.
  6. I was pretty disappointed in this recipe. Very dry (too little butter too much egg??). I don't know it was just weird. I didn't have choc. chips so made without but don't think that effected it that much. Won't make again.
  7. I give these a 4 for just the recipe, but I'd give them a 5 with my modifications. The bar part was really good, very peanut-buttery. I left out the chocolate chips in the dough, but I did sprinkle some on top to melt and spread once I took it out of the oven. After - Read more ...
  8. Very easy recipe. They never last long. They're great without the chocolate too.
  9. What can I say but... This is one recipe that has become a family favorite. I LOVE LOVE LOVED this tasty treat. I didnt find the dough stiff. I just used a hand mixer and it was very creamy. Thanks for the recipe.
