Top Review by Chef shapeweaver

I made this recipe on 4/10/09 for the " Spring PAC 2009 " event.I sure wish that this recipe could have received a higher rating from me :(. After mixing the ingredients for the bottom layer, 1/4 cup of water had to be added so everything would come together.Nowhere in the recipe did it read if the baking dish should be greased or not, so I lightly sprayed the dish with a butter flavored spray.After baking, I spread the chips to melt them, but it wasn't working to well. So I popped them back in the oven for a couple of minutes and that seemed to do the trick. It took almost 45 minutes for the chocolate layers to harden enough to spread on the frosting.Now on to the frosting,to me the amount of the ingredients were way off. I had to add almost another cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup milk to get enough to spread over the chocolate layer. I'm sorry,but this won't be made again.But thanks anyway for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together butter and peanut butter. Add sugars, vanilla and egg. Mix until combined. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients in small amounts to wet ingredients. Once this mixture is combined, pat into a 9 X 13 in pan and bake for about 20 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle chocolate chips over mixture in pan while it's still warm. As they melt, spread the chocolate chips evenly onto cookie mixture with a rubber spatula.
  4. Cool in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, beat together powdered sugar, remaining peanut butter and milk until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency. Spread the powdered sugar mixture over cooled cookie and chocolate bars in pan. Cut into bars.
