Peanut Butter Chocolate Time
I've been on a sweet kick lately that I need to get under control, but first, I have to finish off these peanut butter bars. This recipe from Paula Deen is simple and fast. I added chocolate chips to the mix and melted chocolate over the top because really, what good is peanut butter without chocolate?
Peanut Butter Bars
Recipe adapted from Paula Deen's The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup self-rising flour
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Melt butter and peanut butter in bowl over hot water. Add remaining ingredients. Stir until blended. Allow batter to cool and add chocolate chips. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Drizzle melted chocolate over bars.
