Peanut Butter Swirl Bars

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

There are few ingredients, in my opinion, that go together as well as Peanut Butter and Chocolate. And when you combine the two into a bar cookie – it’s a win-win for everyone. These Peanut Butter Swirl Bars are a huge hit at our house. So much so, that my youngest could eat the whole pan if I let him.

The originally recipe is from an Amish Cook’s newspaper column, the same place where I found the Chocolate Zucchini Cake that we also love. Bar cookies are some of my favorite not only because they are much quicker than scooping cookies, but a lot of the time that seem to be more moist.

With Back to School upon us, these cookies are perfect to pack in lunches or have for an after-school treat. They are also a great choice for bake sales.
