I have an uncle who considers peanut butter its own food group. I don’t remember a time that there hasn’t been the option of peanut butter and crackers at his house, which can really hit the spot sometimes. So the other day for my uncles birthday, I made him these peanut butter squares that I had seen a while ago. Let me just say, these are everything I want in a dessert. Little bite of heaven. To top it off, they were really easy (coming together quickly, with only a few ingredients).
Peanut Butter Squares
Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook Seen on Fake Ginger
- 3/4 cup firmly packed dark or light brown sugar
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
- 2 cups smooth peanut butter
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon salted butter
In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, powdered sugar, butter, and peanut butter, and beat them with an electric mixer until they are smooth and well blended. Pat into an ungreased 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1-inch pan. Roll the mixture flat on top with a rolling pin.
Melt the chocolate chips and butter on top of a double boiler or in the microwave. Spread the chocolate mixture over the peanut butter mixture and cut into squares while the chocolate is still warm and soft.
Chill the mixture for about 15 minutes and remove the squares from the pan.
