Peanut Butter Chip Bars – a buttery shortbread crust topped with an ooey gooey layer filled with nuts and peanut butter chips. Irresistible!
Well, if you are reading this post, it means I didn’t scare you away with the last post in which I confessed the reality of life at my house lately. Whewww. Thanks for still being my friends.
The lawn is still yellow, and the living room walls are still bare, but thankfully my brother now has a bed to sleep in, and we are making great progress on the deck. Woohoo! Today I am doing soccer drafts (I run the sports in our little town), then I’m taking my oldest son school shopping. Since he starts tomorrow, we thought it was probably time. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. Yikes!
Since I’m still just a tad bit busy, I’m sharing a recipe I made a few months ago. I pretty much love anything with sweetened condensed milk, so I was pretty sure these peanut butter chip bars would be a hit. I took them to a bridal shower, and got lots of rave reviews!
The sweet topping is balanced out just perfectly with the buttery crust. It’s loaded with peanut butter chips and nuts, so it has a yummy crunch. Next time I might try it with salted peanuts, I think that would be delish.
Know a peanut butter chip fan? Make one of these treats for them!

I made these bars for an event. I followed the recipe exactly. They were fantastic and everyone really liked them. I will definitely make them again and again.
So happy to hear that Kate!!

I’m jealous. Somebody ate all of mine. It may or may not have been me. 😉

Okay. This is fate. Just this morning, I was looking in my cabinet and found some peanuts that I’d totally forgotten I had. No idea what to do with them, but I knew I was going to HAVE to make something with them soon.
And then this.
The only thing missing are the peanut butter chips …
To the store!
Thanks for sharing. Thank you, thank you, and Fiance thanks you, too.
You’re welcome. I just wish I could’ve stopped by for a taste. 😉

I’m not much of a peanut butter person (crazy, right?) but Sexy Nerd would love this 🙂
It’s just the opposite at our house. I love peanut butter, but it’s not my hubbie’s favorite.
Tammy @ Not Just Paper and Glue
Those look really really good.
Carmie of the Single Nester

I will be making these for sure!
