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!

Easy layered Peanut Butter Chip Squares. Everyone loves these ooey gooey bars.

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!

I love making these peanut butter chip squares for potlucks. They are always devoured!

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.

I always get recipe requests when I serve these ooey gooey peanut butter chip squares.

    1. Perfect, I have all these PB chips i need to use!
      Thanks Kara 😉

    2. Those look so yummy!!! 🙂

    3. 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.
