Who doesn't love Peanut Butter Bars?!? I DO LOVE THEM! Made some up today for a party and thought I would share them as a Possible Neighbor Gift for you! I just hope no one is allergic to peanuts. That would be a tragedy! My poor son right now is off peanuts. Large amounts anyway. He might be a little allergic. :(

What you will need...

Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
Sugar Cookie Mix
(follow directions on mixes. Mine needed oil, eggs and water)
Large Baking Sheet
Non Stick Spray
Chocolate/Peanut Butter mixed morsels
White Chocolate Morsels
First start by following the direction on the cookie mixes. I mixed the peanut butter and Sugar Cookie mixes together in the same bowl. The sugar cookie is the twist. I usually make these with only peanut butter mix, but needed quantity and the sugar cookie mix was what I had. It was a nice touch though. I and everyone who ate them at the party were enjoying them.

Once mixed, spray cookie sheet with non stick spray. Spread cookie mixture over whole pan. Cook at 375 for 10-15 minutes. Depending on oven. I have a convection. It took 10 minutes to be a little overcooked. Oops. Or so I thought. They were actually perfect. YUM!

Let cool. If you are in a hurry, you can put them in the fridge or freezer once the pan has cooled to touch.

Mix up your chocolate/peanut butter morsels and white chocolate morsels in a microwave safe bowl. Cook for 45 sec, stir. Another 30 sec. Stir. And another 10 sec. if needed.Mine didn't need much and I melted it just enough that the white morsels were still somewhat in tact. Can you see the yummy white morsels in the pic? YUMMY!

Once your cookie has chilled enough, spread the chocolate mixture across the whole top of the cookie. Chill in fridge for a couple hours, then cut them up and enjoy.

We like to store ours in the fridge, but can be left out also. We like them cold. Gives them a nice crunch. mmmmm!!!
I think these would make a wonderful give for neighbors. If you like, and make other candies, get a Christmas tin that they can reuse and add in some tissue paper, peanut butter bars, fudge, cookies, truffles, chocolate covered pretzels and more. They will love their tin of treats!

  1. These look scrumptious! I have a cookie decorating party on Saturday to go to and I wanted to bring something different so this is going to work perfectly.
