The Peanut Butter Bar recipe has been in my family for years. I remember making it at my Aunt's house when I was a little girl.

I have made a few adjustments to make it my own over the years. It is a very easy recipe and fun for kids of all ages to make. Also very easy to tweak to fit your personal taste. 

Step 1: Recipe

The original recipe is as follows:

1/2 cup Peanut butter (creamy is the best to work with)
1 1/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients. DO NOT GREASE THE PAN. Bake in a 4 x 12x 2 pan for 25-30 minutes. Cut into squares. 

Now as I have said before I have made some changes. They are:

1 cup chocolate chips 

I bake in a 9 x 13 pan.  

On other occasions I have also added melted chocolate and swirled it in, I have added all kinds of different nuts. Most anything is great mixed in it. 
These were amazing! Honestly liked them better the second day with lots of milk.
They are great the second day, but in my house they don't normally last that long. lol
*drool* These look wonderful. Ive made some similar, they are amazing.
They are wonderful, I have never had anyone complain when I have made them. The recipe is simple and cheap, most everything in it is what is usually in the pantry already.

When my recipes call for &quot;Chocolate chips,&quot; I substitute them with &quot;Xocai Healthy Chocolate.&quot;<br>Their &quot;chocolate&quot; is full of &quot;flavinols&quot; and &quot;Dark chocolate&quot; has actually been proven to be good for you! <br>Because &quot;Xocai&quot; &quot;cold presses&quot; all their &quot;cocoa,&quot; the &quot;good stuff&quot; is preserved and packed full of &quot;heart healthy antioxidants!&quot;<br><br>~Adam Paul Green<br>http://mxi.myvoffice.com/cacaopow/<br>
They are very yummy with milk:) One tip though, be exact with measurements for the butter and peanut butter, or they will be too oily.
Remind me of a big peanut butter cookie, but with chocolate ~ yummy!!<br><br>Thank you for sharing your recipe; I'll definitely be making these Very soon!
Looks so good!!! I want some...with milk :D
