Leave the mixer in the cabinet--you can mix up this dough with a spoon.
3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose baking mix
1 (12-ounce) package dark chocolate morsels, divided
How to Make It
Stir together peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla in large bowl.
Stir in brown sugar until combined. Add baking mix and 3/4 cup dark chocolate morsels, stirring just until moistened. Spread mixture in a lightly greased 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.
Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven, and sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 1/4 cups dark chocolate morsels; let stand 5 minutes or until chocolate melts. Spread melted chocolate evenly over top. Cut into triangles, bars, or squares.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Bisquick All-Purpose Baking Mix and Hershey's Special Dark Chips.
These bars were quite good but nothing special. I love that they don't require a mixer and come together in no time. They were slightly dry but if you're short on time no one will be disappointed with these!
I used creamy PB and a little Nutella cause it was all I had. It seemed very dry so I improvised and added a stick of butter like the pan cookies from the Nestle Tollhouse bag said. It probably would have been better if I had just used half a stick and maybe 1/4 tsp of salt. :) Happy baking.
The flavor is good as you can't go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. The dough "spreads" easily and the bars bake and cut well (no crumbling). They look good and smell good, but they are dryyyyy. I put extra chocolate chips on top so the added "icing" helped a little, but there is no getting past the fact that you need lots of milk to wash these down. I am not giving up on them, I just have to figure out what to add that will give them a little more moisture (applesauce?)
