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.
