My mom called me yesterday asking for me to bake something because today was a coworker’s birthday.  At first my only notes were that he likes peanut butter and chocolate..in only honesty, who doesn’t? It’s my second favorite combination of flavors. Sweet and salty has to be my first, they balance each other perfectly!  Anyways, I have A LOT of peanut butter + choclate goodies in my archives:

1. Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola
2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars
3. Peanut Butter Cookie Cake
4. No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
5. Yummy Bars! 

She tried to describe these bars I once made and neither of us could find them on my site! Eventually we found the recipe and well, they were super hidden within a recap post so I decided that they needed there own post! The first time I made them (seen here) I got nervous that the brownie portion wasn’t enough so well I make another batch and used half of that as well.  Anyways, this time I did what I was told and guess what…it worked!

The middle layer is a mixture of peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk and is a smooth filling between the two brownies “crusts.” I use the term crusts loosely because well, they aren’t crusty, they’re like a thin, more dense brownie.  The peanuts provide a nice crunch to a rather smooth bar. It’s kinda like a sandwich, the brownie part is the bread and the dreamy peanut butter filling is well the filling of a sandwich.

Another perk about these…they are super easy to make! Brownie mix + eggs + oil + vanilla extract

Then chop some peanuts, I used lightly salted because well, as I proclaimed above I love sweet and salty! The peanuts didn’t pack as much of a salty punch as I thought but the crunch is needed.

Add the peanuts, mix and spread half into a lined or greased 9 x 13 pan.  It will be super thin! just keep pressing it down, it will cover the whole pan

In a separate bowl, mix the peanut butter with a can of sweetened condensed milk and pour it over the brownie layer

Then, top with the remaining brownie mix.  The best way to do this is take pieces of the mixture and flatten them in your hand and then spread it over. Bake for 25 minutes at 350*

See? Super easy! And delicious..
