First off, Happy Anniversary to my fabulous sous chef :) Two years and counting!
Man, I can go from diet friendly to diet enemy in just one post. Eh well. Chocolate is my friend and never my enemy; what are you going to do?
These didn’t last long in our 2 person household! I actually tried to make them SOMEWHAT healthy by using this type of peanut butter: Natural Jif Creamy Peanut Butter. No trans fat and lots of protein!
1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups (11.5-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Milk Chocolate Morsels, divided
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Beat peanut butter and butter in large mixer bowl until smooth. Beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in flour and salt. Stir in 3/4 cup morsels. Spread into ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Sprinkle with remaining morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes or until morsels are shiny; spread evenly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
I didn’t add chocolate chips on the top as the recipe called for, but I’m sure that would add more to your taste if you wanted to do so. We liked them as is :)
