Utterly Peanut Butter Bars

Yum!! It’s not all about chocolate on Valentine’s day!! I found this recipe on the side of my C&H Pure Cane Sugar box and we made it in my 4-H project group and the kids in the class loved it! So I thought heck lets share it with you, its SUPER easy to make with only a few ingredients and I’m sure your Valentine will love it!!

Crust

½ cup soft butter (1 stick)

½ cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)

1 ½ cups C&H Pure Cane Granulated Sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

Filling

2 eggs

2 tablespoons peanut butter (smooth or chunky)

½ cup C&H Pure Cane Granulated Sugar

½ cup packed C&H Pure Cane Golden Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Crust – in a medium bowl mix butter, peanut butter and sugar until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Add flour and mix well (mixture will be crumbly). Reserve about 1 cup of this mixture for the top. Firmly press remaining mixture into bottom of lightly greased 9×13-inch baking pan.

Filling – Beat eggs, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together. Spread over unbaked crust. Sprinkle with reserved crust mixture. Bake approximately 20 minutes, or until set and top is golden. Cool in pan and cut into bars. Makes 2 dozen bars.

Enjoy and Happy Baking!!
