Sweets for my sweet? Or, sweets for me! Hi, please get in my belly. Now. Kthxbye….I cannot imagine my life without these anymore. If I make a batch with intention to freeze, they won’t make it. You’ll just love them because they’re in bar form (like take me to the bar!!!), portable, and you can really pack in the yumminess depending on what you like.

You’ll just love these. They are amazing! Dense, chewy, chocolatey, peanut buttery…..I die. And swoon over them. They need no more words except this: I took them to a friends house for dinner and upon arrival, the husband looked at them and said, “yup, she did it again” and he shoved one into his mouth.

BEST COMPLIMENT….

Go make these now….:D

You’ll need:

an hour plus cool time

  • 1 stick (1 cup) butter flavored crisco
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (plus some to sprinkle on the top)
  • 1 chocolate bar of your choice broken into pieces
  1. HEAT oven to 350ºF.
  2. Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray.
  3. BEAT shortening and sugar in large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy.
  4. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla until well blended.
  5. COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.
  6. Gradually add flour mixture to shortening mixture at low speed until well blended.
  7. Add chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and mini marshmallows to batter.
  8. Spread batter in a sprayed square pan (8×8)
  9. Bake for 20 minutes.
  10. Pull pan out of oven. Spread chocolate bar pieces and a handful of marshmallows over the top.
  11. Put back in oven for 5-10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  12. Note: cheap chocolate, ie: hershey’s, will melt too quickly. Consider putting that on once the bars come out. The less expensive chocolate has less cocoa in it and has a higher rate of additives/fillers/wax, which melt quickly. I’m not judging your purchases, I’m just throwing it out there.
  13. Remove from oven, cool completely.
  14. Cut into bars.
  15. Shove in your face.
  16. Die.
  17. Go to heaven.
