Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

I’ve been staring at the pictures in this post for longer than I’d care to admit, trying to figure out what to write that will convince you to make these bars. The only thing running through my head is: “They’re soooo good!” And while that is true, and a definite reason you should make them, that one phrase does not constitute a blog post.  And so I have to fall back on telling you how easy they are to make. How incredibly soft and chewy they are. And how I couldn’t stop eating them. Actually, let’s not talk about that last one.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

These peanut butter chocolate chip bars definitely fall into the category of a dessert that is ridiculously easy to make, but tastes absolutely incredible. A coworker brought them into work one day and after tasting them I immediately begged her for the recipe. I’ve made them twice so far, with rave reviews each time. Seriously, this is one of those bars (cookies?) that makes people take one bite, turn to you in pure happiness, and say: “This is soooo good.” To be honest, I did have one person say they were too rich for his tastes. But since I’ve never said that about a dessert in my life I think I’ll discount his opinion.

    Those bars look incredibly good especially with all that chocolate. So cool that they use Bisquick mix.

    what kind of changes would I have to make to make these with gluten free Bisquick?

    megan @ whatmegansmaking — May 11, 2011 @ 2:52 pm

    Colleen – I've never used gluten free Bisquick, so I'm not sure. Maybe try asking over on the Bisquick facebook page? Sorry I'm not more help! If you figure it out, let me know :)

    I am definitely trying this out! I love cookies in bar form. I will have to be sure and share with someone so I don't have the pan to myself in the house!

    Any way to make these without the Bisquick? Just not something I keep in the house.

    megan @ whatmegansmaking — May 11, 2011 @ 11:59 pm

    Anonymous – if you do a google search you can probably find a homemade biscuit mix that you could measure out to replace the bisquick. I haven't tried this method, so I'm not positive, but it seems like it would work. If you try it, let me know how it turns out! :)

    These look really good, I would love to make these this weekend for a family dinner but I'm supposed to make ice cream sandwiches, I'm thinking 2 birds, 1 stone. Are these sturdy enough that if I baked them 9×13 pan that they would hold up to being eaten as an ice cream sandwich? I'm sure they'd work if you ate it with a fork, but you know kids are going to want to pick them up and eat them – do you think it would work or should I stick to a standard cookie recipe?

    Thank you!

    megan @ whatmegansmaking — May 18, 2011 @ 5:41 pm

    Becky – Thanks so much for your comment! Unfortunately, I'm not sure these would work for ice cream sandwiches. They are more crumbly than the average chocoalte chip cookie…probably due the peanut butter. They would be delicious served with ice cream, and I guess sandwiches might be worth a shot, but I would worry that they would crumble into pieces. Let me know what you end up trying! :)

    Wow, that's an incredibly easy recipe for something that I just know tastes amazing! And too rich? No such thing. ;)

    My 83 year old Mother often eats at my home. I love to make dessert. My Mother usually takes one bite and says, 'this is so rich'! My usual comment is, 'it's dessert Mom, it should be rich'!
    Why can't people just say, 'oh that looks delicious, could you please cut a small slice for me'?
    Love your blog.

    Lookin for a quick and easy dessert/snack recipe for New Years eve and came across this. I just happened to have a bag of mini-chocolate chips and all the other ingredients on hand here at home. Easy easy easy to make! And yuuuuummmmmmmy! I have to drink a tall glass of cold milk with each slice. But my husband loved it too and we were fighting over the last drop of the gallon of milk. I’ll probably make these frequently anytime I need to bake something quick to snack on.

    Would regular sized chocolate chips work for this recipe?

    • megan replied: — January 30th, 2013 @ 9:40 am

      Yes, definitely. They might not be quite as gooey, but the taste will still be great. :)

    I used the Gluten Free Baking Mix from Aldi. The dough was really stiff, so I added about 1 cup of vanilla yogurt. I didn’t have enough chocolate chips, so I added 3/4 quick cook oats. It made a nice thick moist bar. I could have used a 9×13 pan instead and the center would have been done more. Center is a little grainy but moist and I am not sure if it was the GF mix or just not cooked enough.
