Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars have been a family favorite for several years.  Using a cookie mix, this is a fast and easy recipe to bake up.

I do prefer a cookie or bar cookie made from scratch.  However, this is the recipe that the family requests that I make for family and holiday dinners.  If you are a fan of peanut butter and chocolate, I think you will love these bars.

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water
1 egg
1 (12 oz) package Nestle Toll House semi-sweet mini morsels

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a 13×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil with a 1/2 inch overlap.  Spray with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water, and egg until a soft dough forms.  Press into the prepared pan.  Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.  Cool 10 minutes.

In a small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips on high 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until melted, stirring several times.  Spread evenly over the cooled peanut butter base.  Refrigerate 30 minutes or until set.  Remove from pan, cut and serve.  For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows.  Makes approximately 36 bars.  

Thanksgiving is in a couple of weeks.  Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving with lots of good food.
