But then, there are days. You know those days. The days where your toddler is driving you so crazy that you scrap your plan for dinner, and decide that popcorn on the couch while watching a DVD of Puppy Bowl seems to make the most sense because it keeps him QUIET. Ahem.
Those days call for chocolate. And peanut butter. And salt.
I found these bars on the Bru Cru Blog. I licked the screen, I drooled, and then I made them.
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup chopped peanuts
1/2 cup peanut butter baking chips
2 cups chopped pretzels
2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp shortening
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9x13 baking dish and set aside.
Cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter and cream again. Slowly add the dry ingredients until it is mixed in.
