Melt butter in a large sauce pan over low heat, stir to prevent burning.

Keep on low heat, add brown sugar.

Stir until sugar is dissolved in butter.

Add vanilla and peanut butter, mix thoroughly.

Add confectioners’ sugar, combine well.

Press into a buttered/sprayed 9×13 cake pan, let cool.

Melt chocolate chips over double-boiler and spread evenly over peanut butter layer.

Let cool completely and cut into squares.
Servings: 12-24 bars (depending on how you cut them)


PETERS writes, “This recipe was made after years of searching, trying, and failing. During my elementary school years the café served a delicious peanut butter bar, with a layer of chocolate on top. I remember my friends and I trading around for the biggest piece. After beginning my own blog in 2013, I decided it was time to figure it out. I stayed in the kitchen for hours and finally mixed up and made the closest batch that I could. After serving them to my family, I branched out and made them for church; everyone loved them! They became a quick recipe request and now I make them for every holiday I can!”
