peanut-y and chocolatey

Peanutty Gooey Bars
Happy Spring, everyone. I know I’m a bit late, but today really felt like Spring, and that seems like more of a reason to celebrate than the official date. As you may know from reading my blog, I’m a sucker for every new variety of baking chip that comes out.
Nestle peanut and chocolate chips
The Nestle peanut butter & milk chocolate morsels caught my eye recently. There is a great recipe on the back of the package that I just had to try. Check it out here on their site. It doesn’t get much easier than that, right?
graham cracker crust
Just one problem — I didn’t have the chocolate graham crackers. I just mashed up some regular grahams and mixed them with a little cocoa. That worked out pretty well in fact.

You spread out the graham crust, and then use a cup of the morsels to make the gooey layer with condensed milk and vanilla. I had fun taking the pouring photos.

Then you spread the rest of the chips on top, along with some coarsely chopped peanuts. (I bet walnuts would be good too.)

Baking is a snap. I might line the pan with parchment or foil if I made this again, but other than that, these bars are super easy and a real treat if you like peanut butter as much as I do.
