Peanut Butter Swirl Bars

  An old post revamped--making these to take my brothers for Christmas--a family favorite!  Chocolate & Peanut Butter--what could be better! This is one of my go-to recipes when I need something to take to a picnic or party. _ I can't remember a time growing up when we didn't make these--my Mom still makes them when she knows we'll be visiting! ( originally posted in 2009--my Mom passed away in 2011)


Peanut Butter swirl bars
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter
1/3 c. margarine, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt.
2 c. semi-sweet morsels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine peanut butter, butter, brown sugar and sugar, beat until creamy. Gradually beat in eggs and vanilla. Blend in flour, baking powder and salt. Spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle the chocolate over the top. Place in the oven for 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, run a knife through the batter to marbelize. Return to the oven, bake 30 minutes. Cool & cut into squares.

Thanks for the recipe, Ann. Now I know what to bring to the so-called dessert social we have at work just before the winter holiday - aka Christmas, but not in state government! I just read about your cat. So sorry. And I hope Rafe will be well soon.
