I may just be back in action for a little while.
Oh how I have missed all of you......
I have decided to celebrate my own return.
I am going to celebrate with these Peanut Butter Overload Cookie Bars.
These come from A Kitchen Addiction.
I made a sinful change though.....
You can't have peanut butter without chocolate.
So I combined the two most deadliest world sins.....
Please forgive me "A Kitchen Addiction",
but if we are going to overdose (overload) I want to go out with love.
And I love dark chocolate!
Peanut Butter Overload Cookie Bars
1/4 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. Rodelle vanilla
3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. quick oats
3/4 c. Reese's Mini peanut butter cups, un-chopped
1/3 c. dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray an 8x8 or 9x9 pan.
In a large bowl of a stand mixer lightly cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and soda. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat until combined. Stir in oats. Stir in peanut butter cups and chocolate chips.
Press dough into the bottom of the baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes (mine took like 20-25) or until edges are golden brown and center is set.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes before cutting into bars.
