This is a favorite recipe, and if you have been following along you’ve probably seen it before. It’s easy and I usually have everything in my pantry to make it except for the chocolate bars. I have a good friend who enjoys the chocolate and peanut butter combination and because I’ve been watching my sugar intake more closely lately I will probably be sharing some of this recipe with my friend.

Remember that to ‘frugalize’ this further you could always use clearance milk chocolate that you purchased after a holiday or look for a good sale.

To ‘healthify’ the recipe somewhat, I would use all natural or homemade peanut butter and dark chocolate.

Mix together:

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

2 tsp melted butter

1 cup milk

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

Spread into a greased and floured jelly roll pan, sheet pan, or a large cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 15-20 mins.

Let cool slightly and spread with peanut butter. The recipe calls for a cup but I believe I used a little more.

I refrigerated it at this point to get the peanut butter to the point where I could spread the chocolate.

Melt 3 large chocolate bars by whichever method you prefer. I used the microwave and started at 1 minute then needed two more 30 second increments, stirring after each. I used about 10.5 ounces of chocolate and it seemed to be just enough.

This is important! Cut the bars now while everything is still warm and then refrigerate.  If you choose to make these this weekend, I hope you enjoy yours as much as we will ours.  Yum!
