Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
Cookie bars with a buttery shortbread crust and a gooey delicious peanut butter chocolate filling.
Yield: 24 bars
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup butter, cut into ½-inch dice
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup dried coconut
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
  1. For the crust, whisk together the flour, sugar, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour until the mixture is crumbly. Press into a parchment-lined 9x13-inch pan. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla, and salt. Mix in the coconut and chocolate chips, until just incorporated.
  3. Pour the filling over the crust. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until top is golden. Cool completely and then cut into bars.
