INGREDIENTS

 

Bars

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter or margarine, room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups coarsely chopped pretzels

 

Topping

  • ¼ cup peanut butter chips
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped pretzels

 

 

Directions

 

  1. Line a 4-quart temp-tations® baker with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat butter, light brown sugar, and granulated sugar at medium speed until mixture is fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla extract to butter and sugar mixture. With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture and beat just until incorporated.
  5. Stir in chunky peanut butter, chocolate chips, and pretzel pieces, then spread batter evenly in baker.
  6. Sprinkle peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and pretzel pieces on top, and bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting.

 

 

Tara’s Tidbits®

Lining the baker with foil allows you to lift and remove the contents in one big piece, making it easier to then cut the bars neatly and evenly on a cutting board. For a nicer presentation, put the cut bars back into the temp-tations® baker and serve.
