One more way to use leftover peanut butter eggs.

An oh my are they good!  Today, I felt like baking.  It's one of the cold rainy days, really crazy for the end of May.  So I baked up a batch of cookie bars.

If your a peanut butter fan then you'll love these!

Peanut Butter Bar Recipe: 
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup salted butter (softened)
  • 3 eggs (whisked)
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2  cups peanut butter chips
  • 6 peanut butter eggs chopped ( you can use peanut butter cups as well)  
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add in eggs and stir until combined. Mix the baking powder and salt with 1 cup of flour. Pour into the butter mixture and stir in the rest of the flour. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped pb eggs. 
  2. Grease a 12x14 pan (13x9 will work too) and lightly dust with flour. Press dough into pan with flour on your hands. Bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Test with a tooth pick. The dough should be soft in the center.
  3. I tried a 9X9 pan, but they were just to think and the topped browned before the bars were cooked all the way.  

  1. Allow bars to cool and then enjoy with a cold glass of milk!


  1. Oh, you make me laugh. In my house there is no such thing as 'left over' peanut butter eggs! These do look delish, though!


Thanks for commenting, they really do brighten my day!
