Peanut Butter Swirl Bars

August 27, 2014
Delicious, easy to make peanut butter bars with a swirl of chocolate..
Way back in 2011, when, I told my mom I started this little foodie blog, she was so very excited.  You see,  my mom?  Major foodie.  Major.  She gets up in the morning and one of the first things she does is decides what she is cooking for dinner.  Her day basically consists of what food she is cooking, what food she is buying and most important,.what she's eating.   It drives Mr Plain batty.  Don't tell her!
Anyway, along with her serious foodie love, comes a recipe collection that is just enormous. Whenever we visit, I sit down at her kitchen table with her recipe collection and my phone and start snappin' recipes.
On the last visit, I came across these bars and was very happy myself.  They are a childhood favorite of mine.  I adore them and of course, now, do my kids. Not a surprise.
They are delicious peanut butter bars with a nice chocolate swirl on top. The ingredients are probably in your pantry right now too.  Simple, simple, stuff in these.  A great peanut butter taste too.
Make them soon..my mom will be so happy you did
