Last night I was craving one my mom's bar recipes, and it turned out so much better than the last peanut butter bar recipe I made, so I thought I'd share this super yummy recipe:

Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

Bottom Bar Ingredients

  • 3/4 c. margarine
  • 3/4 c. white sugar
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 – 3 c. flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 c. chocolate chips*
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter
  • 4 TBsp milk


Cream together margarine and sugars. Add peanut butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda and powder (I was out of baking powder so used more baking soda). Pat in greased 9×13 pan and bake for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.  Immediately after removing from oven, sprinkle chocolate chips atop. Mix powdered sugar, peanut butter and milk.  Once chocolate chips turn shiny, swirl peanut butter mixture on top of chips.

*As you can see above, I was a little impatient (and hungry) so not all of my chips were fully melted. I actually used half real semi-sweet chocolate chips and half imitation chocolate chips (cleaning out the pantry), so that may have been the reason for them not all melting.  I suggest using real semi-sweet chocolate chips. But all in all, they were still super yummy!
