These bars were served in the dormitory in my college days. The recipe came from the ladies in the kitchen. Much adjustment had to be done to size this down to a family version.
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter or 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- Cream butter and sugar, add all eggs annd dry ingredients.
- Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
- Spread in a 13x9 greased pan.
- Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set.
- Frost with Cream Cheese frosting or Chocolate Frosting.
Heavenly. I took cookingqueen80's advice and upped the flour to 2 c. I also used a little less sugar and one less egg. The result is a scrumptious bar, moist, rich, buttery and all around perfect. I didn't add nuts; they'd be great but these are really rich bars without them. Thanks for this winner!
It was really good! I only changed the flour to 2 cups because I thought the dough wasn't thick as a bar dough recipe.
These are very tasty bars but I had 2 problems with the recipe. First, the directions don't mention where to add the peanut butter so I added it with the butter, sugar and eggs. Second, even after baking the bars for 35 minutes, they were still very gooey. They did set up a bit overnight but I'm wondering if a little more flour might help. All in all, these bars were enjoyed by the group I shared them with and I will be making this recipe again. Thanks for sharing!
