Peanut Butter Lunch Lady Cookie Bars

These have become an absolute staple in my house! Also, it is my total standard recipe for ‘gotta-bring-something-sweet’ to ‘fill-in-the-blank’. SO easy, SO fast and terrific for satisfying those cravings. I chill the peanut butter base for 15 or 20 minutes before topping with the chocolate so the warm chocolate doesn’t melt into the peanut butter too much, making spots of too thick chocolate and leaving other areas spread too thin!

Cookies baked up in a sheet pan are a magical thing – the recipe is simple to make and it feeds a crowd without the hassle of portioning out individual spoonfuls of dough. Our childhood lunch lady knew all the tricks for feeding a hungry crowd, so we’ve taken some inspiration from her with our Peanut Butter Lunch Lady Cookie Bars. (Though our food hopefully tastes a little better than standard lunchroom fare!)

 

We topped these cookie bars with a peanut butter frosting, which is sweet but the perfect pairing. You just can’t have too much peanut butter. A great alternative if you like a little more contrast would be a chocolate frosting – but we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. Peanut butter desserts are quite delicious – of course, we love the sweetness, but the hint of saltiness really adds something special. Salty and sweet really are a match made in dessert heaven and our peanut butter cookie bars bring the best of both worlds together into one sheet pan.

SO GOOD!!!! If you are a peanut butter/chocolate fanatic like me, then you will love this. I followed other reviewers suggestions to make the recipe easier by melting the peanut butter with butter, then mix with graham crackers and powdered sugar. Also, chill the peanut butter base for 15 minutes before topping with chocolate mixture.
