Peanut Butter Bars

Peanut butter + chocolate = amazing. I enjoy this combination in almost any form. So it should come as no surprise that I loved these treats. They were easy to put together, and a perfect bite-sized treat for a cookout. This recipe was found on Fake Ginger and is from the Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook.

You will need:
*3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
*3 cups powdered sugar 

*1/2 cup salted butter, softened 

*2 cups smooth peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co. White Chocolate Wonderful)

*2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 
1 tablespoon salted butter

1. Combine the brown sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and blended. Spread into an ungreased baking pan (I used my 13x9 Pyrex). Roll the mixture flat with a rolling pin.

2. Melt the chocolate chips and butter with a double boiler or in a microwave. Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture and cut into squares while the chocolate is still warm and soft.

3. Chill for about 15 minutes; remove the squares from the pan.
