SUPER SOFT PEANUT BUTTER BARS

June 8, 2013

I like my desserts gooey. Like, make me wonder if I’m at risk for salmonella, it’s-as-if-this-wasn’t-baked softness levels.

If I’m preaching to the choir to you on this one, you’ll find these peanut butter blondies a dream come true. So soft and rich, you’ll think you could only eat half of one. (But then go on to make a notable dent in the whole pan.)

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool and frost with milk chocolate frosting. I liked mine chilled in the fridge for a bit before eating.

    This was absolutely wonderful! Wondering how your icing is so shiny. Mine tasted delicious but had no sheen at all. Trick?

      Hm. I’m not sure! Maybe just a photo glare?
