Here is a quick and easy way to make chocolate peanut butter bars when you don’t have time to shape and bake individual cookies.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Pat dough into ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Press evenly spaced chocolate candies into warm bars. Cool completely. Cut into bars, cutting between candies.

This is so yummy and a hit every time!!
I made this and I loved them! They were so easy to make and I had a couple of friends over and they just loved them!
I was really upset to find the recipe in the margerine box and go to all the expense and trouble to make it...then to log on and find that it was changed because it really wasn't very good in a 13x9, more butter, less flour, etc.
Very disappointed in final result. I did use creamy peanut butter that I had on hand that may have contributed to the lack of flavor. Not sweet enough for me, very bland flavor and dry. Did not taste like individual cookies that I make. It was a waste of time and money and ingredients for me because I dumped the plate of bars after family agreed they were not very good. I do not like to waste "fun, treat" calories on poor tasting items. Very disappointed that recipe with questionable results is printed in the box...good marketing I guess...but I was mad enough to actually sign up and express my disappointment. Thanks.

time given on recipe dried out cookies--almost inedible
The ingredients made this good, but we didn't much care for the finished product. It was definitely easy but I wouldn't make it again.
I thought making a bar cookie sounded good (with the extra mini chocolate chips) and easy, however, we did not care for them. Even though it takes more work, the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup cookies are FAR superior.
These cookies are moist and delicious, and they're very easy to make. I plan to make them the next time with chocolate chips sprinkled on the top or maybe M&Ms. This recipe is a keeper!
I made these last year for a Christmas party and they were eaten fast. Very good and easy recipe. They were chewy and extra chocolatey. I made them with smooth peanut butter.
These were easy and turned out delicious, definitely adding to my Holiday Mix.

Every year around this time, I start to panic a little. How am I ever going to decide what cookies to bake for the holiday season?! Do I stick with the classics or try something new? How many can we eat at our house (more than I care to admit…but cookies count as part of a balanced breakfast, right?) Without self-restraint, I could probably make a dozen different kinds!

‘Tis the season to make all things sweet – cookies, cakes, and candies. Yes, even candies – those “sometimes tricky” treats that make the holiday so special. More ...
