Chewy peanut butter bars with lots of milk chocolate chips. These seriously taste like a peanut butter brownie, and they are so easy! Add them to your holiday baking list, stat.
So, it is December 12. And I haven’t made a single Christmas recipe yet. Eeeek. I had hoped to do that over the weekend, but we all came down with colds (boo) so baking was a no-go. Maybe next weekend. But I still have a sweet treat to share with you guys!! These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies may not be the most Christmas-y recipe you’ll ever make, but they’re pretty darn delicious. If you’re making a big platter of Christmas cookies for a party or making treat bags for friends and neighbors, be sure to include a batch of these. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already. I know I do!
My favorite thing about these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies (besides how yummy they taste!) is that they have the texture of a gooey, fudgy brownie–including that crinkly top!!–but the taste of a Reese’s cup. It’s crazy!! Crazy good, that is. I can’t wait to make them again soon! If you wanted to make them extra-special for the Christmas season, adding some red and green sprinkles on top would be a fun addition. Or add some chocolate icing and sprinkles… yum! Enjoy, friends!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies
from Bunny’s Warm Oven
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips (reserve 1/3 cup to sprinkle on top if desired)
Grease a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. When melted, remove from heat. Whisk in peanut butter until melted. Stir in sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Fold in flour and baking powder, then stir in chocolate chips (reserve 1/3 cup to sprinkle on top of bars if desired).
Immediately transfer batter to prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved chocolate chips on top, then bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown on top. My brownies took a few minutes longer. Don’t overbake them though!
Cool and then cut into squares to enjoy!
