Peanut Butter Toffee Bars

Lark"s Country Heart

Sunday was National Peanut Butter Cookie Day. Sunday is also the day I love to be in the kitchen Baking up a storm. Boy did I ever....so I thought I would make a Peanut Bar. I do have a good recipe, but I wanted it to have more of a peanut butter kick plus some sweetness. This is the result of my brain storming. 
My family say they are a 10.

Peanut Butter Toffee Bars

2/3 C. Margarine;softened
1 C. Peanut Butter- I used creamy
1 C. Sugar
1 C. Brown Sugar
4 Eggs Beaten
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract *you can always use cold coffee too!
2 C. Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 C. Toffee Chips
1 (10oz.) pkg. Peanut Butter Chips

Preheat oven to 350.
Start by Creaming together the Margarine, Peanut Butter, And both Sugars.  In a separate bowl sift together the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt. Slowly add in the Beaten eggs and vanilla to the creamed mixture. When all in smooth & mixed then add in the flour mixture a 1/3 at a time. At last mix in the Toffee & Peanut Butter Chips. Spread into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake for 38-42 minutes, or until center is done.
Let cool in pan completely before frosting. I piped the PB. Frosting on, however the recipe will make enough for you to cover the entire pan.

Creamy Peanut Butter Frosting

4 TBSP Margarine
1 C. Creamy Peanut Butter
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 C. Powdered Sugar
In a mixing bowl beat together the Margarine & Peanut Butter. add in the vanilla and 1 C. Powdered Sugar. Beat well continuing to add in more powdered sugar until gone. *add milk to get the spreading consistency  desired. This is one of the best PB. Frosting I have tasted.

You will be getting requests for these Bars often.
Country Kisses,

This looks like a fantastic recipe. I like your criss-cross pattern better than spreading all over I think. Thank you for linking them at Joy of Desserts, Lark.
