Something Heavenly

October 11, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is really not a recipe blog, but I thought since the name of this dessert is Heavenly Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars, it might qualify for a post.  This recipe was included in the food section of our newspaper this past week, and when I took one look at the ingredients–chocolate and peanut butter together–I knew I had to try it.  They turned out to be just as I expected–delicious!  Two of my other taste testers, my husband and my Dad, also couldn’t keep their hands off of them.

Cookie Base

  • 2 (7.4 oz.) packages Martha White® Chocolate Chip Muffin Mix
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tsps of milk

Chocolate Topping

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Optional: chopped nuts

 Directions
Heat oven to 350° F. Spray bottom of  a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray. Stir together muffin mix and 6 tablespoons butter. Spread into baking pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

Beat 1/2 cup butter, peanut butter, powdered sugar and milk in small bowl until smooth. Spread mixture over cookie base. Melt chocolate chips and 1/4 cup butter. Cool 10 – 20 minutes. Spread over peanut butter filling. Refrigerate 1 hour or until set.
