This riff on magic bars or hello dolly bars is made with chocolate and peanut butter. Can’t go wrong with that!


Units Scale

1 1/2 c graham cracker crumbs or peanut butter cookie crumbs
1 stick butter
1 can condensed milk
1/2 c peanut butter
9 oz chocolate chips
9 oz peanut butter chips
1 to 1 and 1/2 cups salted peanuts, coarsely chopped


Preheat oven to 350. Place a 13 x 9 pan in oven with the stick of butter. Let butter melt. This takes about 5 minutes. Take out of oven and tilt pan until butter covers pan evenly.

Top with graham cracker crumbs and  press down to create a crust.

Heat peanut butter in microwave for about 30 seconds or until softened. Whisk into condensed milk. Pour condensed milk evenly across crumbs. With a spatula, lightly spread condensed milk evenly over crumbs.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips, then peanut butter chips and then the salted peanuts.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden around the edges. Chill and then cut into squares.
