These Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars have a fudgy and rich brownie layer on the bottom with lots of deep chocolate flavor; a thick and creamy layer of peanut butter filling; and on top is another layer of chocolate made from melted chocolate chips.
I know normally with a guest post I tell you all about the blogger first but I cannot stop staring at these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars! It’s my favorite combination and Christin NAILED IT! The fudgy, chewy chocolate peanut butter goodness is calling my name. Shouting even.
Christin from Spicy Southern Kitchen is one of my blogging idols. I love her little snippets about her family and the love that she injects into every part of her blog. She also happens to post the most crave worthy sweets and filling, hearty dinners all with a Southern flare. I mean look at this Skillet Chicken Pot Pie with a Cheddar Crust and this Chocolate Chess Pie….oh, oh and these Slow Cooker Chocolate Brownies! And she posted a recipe for my all time Southern favorite…Flying Biscuits Sweet Biscuits.
I want to go live with her. I keep waiting on my invitation. Hint, hint… 😉

Y’all, I’m so happy to have the opportunity to guest post for Lindsey today while she’s off in New York learning all kinds of fancy pastry stuff. I can tell subsequently from her Instagram pictures she’s having a really awesome time. I’m already blown away by her desserts. Those cupcakes! Boy, oh boy! Lindsey you really need to open a cupcake store.
In short, I can’t wait to see what amazing things she comes up with after pastry school. And thus I may have to make the 3 hour drive to Atlanta to get a taste. (You’ve been warned Lindsey!)
Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Is there anything better than this classic combination?
I don’t know about you but chocolate and peanut butter send me to my happy place. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars in particular have plenty of each in what I think is the perfect ratio.
On the bottom is a fudgy and rich brownie layer with lots of deep chocolate flavor. While in the middle is a thick and creamy layer of peanut butter filling. On top is another layer of chocolate made from melted chocolate chips.
And just so the peanuts didn’t feel like the chocolate was getting more love, I sprinkled chopped honey-roasted peanuts on top to finish these bars off.
This recipe specifically makes a 9X13-inch pan full of triple layer Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars. So even if you absolutely gorge yourself in chocolate/peanut butter goodness, you should still have plenty to share.
Cut them big or cut them small, it’s up to you. Personally, I like them big. All you need regardless is a tall glass of milk to wash down all that sweetness.
Enjoy and thanks for letting me stop by!
Chef Lindsey here again…
