I feel like I’ve just rediscovered how incredible peanut butter is, for the umpteenth time in my life. I mean, I KNOW it’s good, but sometimes it just takes a heavy swirl of nutella or a solid helping of dark chocolate to remind me how much I love peanut butter. Anyhow, I’m officially loving peanut butter again, and I blame these bars (and whoever invented “magic bars” in the first place, naturally.)
Actually – is this crazy?! – I’ve just discovered magic bars AND sweetened condensed milk. I knew both existed but I’d never tried either before. So, this is my first foray into magic-bar-baking and sweetened-condensed-milk-using and I have to say, I’m pretty into it. A crazy good dessert that’s incredibly easy to make and can pretty much be customized in a million different ways? Um, yes please.
If you make these here’s what you should know: They’re simple. They’re straightforward. They’re kinda sweet and rich but not in an overwhelming way, more in a perfect way. AND they’re unapologetically laden with chocolate and peanut butter in every bite and it’s absolutely blissful. There’s a crumbly peanut butter graham cracker cookie base topped with a layer of gooey sweetened condensed milk, generously sprinkled with deep, dark bittersweet chocolate chips and bold peanut butter chips. When they’re warm, they’re soft, melty, and completely heavenly, and when they’ve cooled, they have this perfect mixture of dense, chewy, and crumbly textures that you can sink your teeth into. Either way, they’re incredible and I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a dessert disappear in our house as quickly as these did.
Now, for the exciting thing about today’s post; I have a video to share! For the first time you can actually watch how one of my recipes are made! You can also get a little glimpse into how neat and organized I am in the kitchen; just picture the exact opposite of what you see in the video. HAH ;)
As you’ll need peanut butter to make these bars and I’m sure you’re constantly running to the store to pick up groceries for holiday entertaining anyhow, be sure to check out Kraft’s current set of coupons that are redeemable in all Target stores. I don’t know about you, but I can easily get carried away at Target, so up to $20 in savings sounds like good news to me – especially when it involves a jar of peanut butter (Thank You Kraft!). I used their Planter’s Peanut Butter in this recipe and now I have a new go-to brand; it’s good stuff!
You know what you should do right now? Grab the peanut butta’ and MAKE THESE!
