Ok, peanut butter lovers, this one’s for you! This is one of those super easy, crazy delicious recipes that you will make again and again. Though, I guess it’s only fair that I warn you – it’s really, really hard to stop at just one bar!
These bars start off with a thick, chewy peanut butter cookie base. Then, (because what goes better with peanut butter than chocolate?), let’s throw in some chocolate chips.
Next comes the most beautiful part. Add a bag of unwrapped mini Reese’s peanut butter cups. You don’t even need to chop them, just toss them into the dough whole!
I love adding the pb cups whole because when you turn on the mixer, it breaks them apart in all different sizes. That means, while every bite has some peanut butter love, some bites have a big ol’ hunk of those glorious peanut butter cups. Oh yeah.
I originally posted this recipe way back on Oct 9, 2013, not long after starting this blog. It has always been popular, and one of my personal favorites, so I decided it was time to post new photos along with a video and share these again!
These are so easy to make and are perfect for parties, potlucks, or lazy days when you’re craving some homemade sweets 🙂
