This dough smells and tastes just like the inside of a Butterfinger, and when it's cooked, it becomes a salty-sweet masterpiece to rival any of those fancy salted caramels in the chocolate shops. I love it with coffee, a glass of vanilla almond milk, or late at night after an alcohol-soaked night out.
Peanut Butter Bars with Chocolate Chips
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup butter, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons salt
¼ cup chopped salted peanuts
½ cup chocolate chips
Cream eggs, sugars, peanut butter, butter, and vanilla together until fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly (the dough will be thick and sticky). Spread into a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake at 325°F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool and cut into squares.
