Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars

September 7, 2012

Today, friends, we all celebrate.  Because this is my 100th post!  What does one post for a milestone like this?!  An extravagant cake?  My favorite cookies?  A savory dish?  Something to deliver on the promise of keeping healthy for a little bit?

Nope, none of the above!  Or maybe all of the above, I don’t know – I’ve never celebrated such an occasion before!  But I wanted to post something all of you can make today.  Something that is easy and gooey and yummy and celebratory.

And these bars fit all of those criteria.  Here’s to 100 more posts!  Yay.

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars (slightly adapted from here)

  • 3 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9×13, rectangular shaped pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, use a fork to combine the crushed graham crackers, melted butter, peanut butter, salt and sugar. Press into the bottom of prepared dish. Spread chocolate chips over the crust. Drizzle sweetened condensed milk on top.  Bake 25-30 minutes, or until the top layer is a golden brown. Remove and cool completely before slicing and serving.
