We love peanut butter and chocolate at our house. As residents of Columbus, Ohio and as big Ohio State Buckeye fans (it's required in Columbus), we love to make and eat candy "buckeyes." If you haven't heard of them or seen them, they're little balls of sweetened peanut butter dough dipped in melted chocolate - leaving a round area of peanut butter on top. They're designed to look like the nuts of Ohio's state tree, the buckeye (relative of the horse chestnut). These PB Bars are buckeyes in bar form. So much less work and just as delicious.
We love this recipe from Tasia, the lovely and talented baking and cooking blogger behind twosugarbugs.com. Check out her great recipes if you've got a sweet tooth.
Of course, we tweaked this recipe a little for our less-sweet tastebuds. And we describe how we made it in our KitchenAid stand mixer using SideSwipe, naturally! We hope you try it.
The 9 x 13 tray yields about 24 servings. We would say it serves 12 people with a sweet tooth! The cut bars can be made a couple of days ahead and keep in a tightly sealed container for 4-5 days.
Process/instructional photos and video coming soon!
