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.
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.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups Bisquick mix
1 bag (12 oz) mini chocolate chips
Heat oven to 325. Spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix peanut butter and eggs until well blended. Stir in the brown sugar until combined. Stir in Bisquick mix just until moistened, then stir in chocolate chips. Spread mixture in prepared pan. Bake 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
