1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray foil with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup butter and vanilla in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add peanut butter and egg; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Spoon crust mixture evenly into prepared pan; press to cover completely. Bake 12-15 minutes or until top is light golden brown. Cool slightly.

  4. STEP 4

    Meanwhile, combine corn syrup, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup butter in 2-quart heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat 1-2 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter chips until melted; stir in peanuts. Spread mixture carefully over crust. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Place chocolate chips and oil in small bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 60-90 seconds or until melted and smooth. Drizzle over bars. Let stand until set.

Tip #1

Lining the pan with aluminum foil allows you to easily remove bars from pan. Then cut by pressing straight down with a large knife. This gives you straight, even bars.
