Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
From The Parsley Thief
*Makes one full brownie sized pan of bars
What you will need:
1/2 cup dark brown sugar {packed}
2 2/3 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp of unsalted butter- divided
1 3/4 cups creamy peanut butter
10 ounces milk chocolate chips
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate {chopped}
Place parchment paper down in your brownie sized pan and let a little bit of it hang over the side.
Combine the brown sugar, confectioner’s sugar, 1/2 cup of butter, and peanut butter in the bowl and blend with an electric mixer. Blend until smooth. Dump the mixture into the pan and press it down.
Melt the chocolates & 2 tablespoons of butter in a double boiler or a heat-proof bowl set over simmering water. Stir occasionally to combine the melting chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate over the peanut butter base and smooth the surface.
Put the pan in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set. Remove the bars with the overhang from the parchment paper and slice into squares with a knife.
