Double Peanut Butter Bars



School started last week here.  My son went for the first 2 days, and then was home sick.  Somehow he managed to get Strep in the first 2 days of school, really?  It was a long weekend of trying to get him better.  His fever has been impossible to get rid of, so he wasn't exactly himself this weekend.  Now with 4 doses of antibiotics in him, hopefully this will be the turning point.  I know I could use a good nights sleep, can't even imagine how good it will be for him! 

These bars were one of a few desserts that our whole family liked.  My husband isn't much of a chocolate lover, and I am a complete choco-holic.  So finding something we agree on is not easy.  Peanut butter is one thing though!  My husband came home from work one day, and asked if I could make something for him to bring to work the next day.  I had just found a bag Reese's Peanut Butter Chips in my pantry, so I figured I would make something with them.  The recipe on the back of the bag looked good enough to me.  They were a hit!  People at worked loved them, we loved them, and they were great slightly warmed with ice cream on top later!  I will gladly make these again!

Another lovely dessert of yours Erin although we at home are not big into chocs and desserts. Surely my friends will enjoy it if I can bake for them.

Ohh I hope your little one gets better soon! :-)

The bars look so scrumptious! I have the same problem... I am a chocoholic while my husband only likes white chocolate...

Strep throat-it has been awhile since I have had that, but it is no fun. Hope your kiddo gets better soon.
Your bars do look delicious, funny that I rarely look at recipes on the packages. However, this post proves that I may be missing out. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry to hear your son is sick. Thankfully he's got a mama like you to make him these -- I'm sure they helped with recovery!

I'm sick at home myself, but these look like a great pick-me-up!

I hope your son feels better soon and you all get some good rest.

I have a bag of peanut butter chips that needs to be used, so this is perfect timing. Thanks for sharing another delicious recipe!

I feel your pain...my daughter is not the chocoholic the other family members are, so it's hard to please everyone. She's love this one :)

Your pb bars look incredibly good! I like the idea of making a sundae out of them. Hope your son feels better!

My daughter went back to school today and it's a peanut FREE zone, meaning no PB&J sandwiches. She loves peanut butter so I'm going to make this recipe for her today. It's a great after snack and I always love making the baked goods as I know all the ingredients! Thanks for sharing.

Aw, your poor little man. Sick within the first two days??? We don't start school until after labour day, here's hoping we don't run into any illnesses early on. Great bars!

YUM! I love peanut butter. My whole family would love this dessert. I hope your son feels better soon. It's so awful when they get sick! We haven't started school out this way yet, but soon. I'm already dreading the colds, coughs and sore throats that are in my future with both my kids. Hope you get some sleep too!

Awww!! Your poor son, I hope he gets feeling better quickly. That really stinks to get sick in the first couple of days of school!! Though I'm sure these bars would cure any sickness!! ;-)

Anything Reese's Peanut Butter rules, the bars look awesome. Hopefully these will be special medication to help your son feel 100% again.

Ugh...school and sick walk hand in hand. I hope your son feels better very soon. If it helps, it gets a bit better in middle school. The peanut butter bars look amazing!

Erin....nothing better than peanut butter bars except DOUBLE peanut butter bars! These look wonderful! My boys got strep all too often when they were younger. I hope your son is on the mend soon. Hang in there! : )

My dear you should hand out head guards with your recipes. That way some of us over-zealous readers won't hurt ourselves when we thump into the screen. This one is screen licking worthy!

I hope you soon gets better soon. Poor thing, those hurt. I bet these bars helped greatly. Wish I had one about now. Hope you have a great week.

Oh boy, the only way these could be any better is if they were triple peanut butter!

Not being a chocolate lover myself - these look fantastic! I'm making these for sure. They'd probably be dangerous to leave around the house. :) YUM!

I did everything short of begging our pediatrician to just take my son's tonsils out last year...but strep 4 times in 4 months isn't enough...it's got to be 10 times in a calendar year....so the 2 more times he had it from January - March didn't help his numbers either. but I guess as long as he gets it 8 more times before this year is over...then we're good.

Nice job on top 9 too!

Congrats on Top 9, chicka! Love these!

Peanut butter is my favorite flavor. I can see myself sitting down to a big bar and a glass of skim milk (of course) lol...

nothing beats peanut butter and chocolate! how nice that the recipe was right on the bag!

Hi Erin - Just a quick note to let you know that I made these yesterday for a neighborhood get together. I only adapted the recipe slightly - I used chocolate chips instead of syrup (no marbled look - but they were tasty). Not a single one was left - adults and kids were all very happy. :) Thank you!

Hi Erin, I hope your little guy is feeling better now - poor little one. I also have a 6 year old. He says he doesn't like peanut butter. We'll see if that's still true after he tastes these Double Peanut Butter Bars! Take care.
