Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod
Servings: 12 -16 bars
- 1 cup butter at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon course sea salt
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
Preheat oven to 325.
Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined.
Fold in peanut butter chips. Spread dough in a 9 x 13 baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Other sizes will work as well - they will just determine the thickness and cooking length of the bars.
Bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes. If bars are not done (due to using a different sized dish), bake for 5-6 minute increments. Let cool completely before slicing.
