Peanut Butter Blossom Bars

Peanut Butter Blossom Bars are a delightful twist on the classic Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies. This bar version is easier to make and equally delicious. Here’s a simple recipe for you:


For the Bars:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Topping:

  • 36-48 chocolate kisses (unwrapped)


1. Preheat Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.

2. Make the Peanut Butter Bars:

  • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and peanut butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.

3. Combine Dry Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

4. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients:

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

5. Spread the Dough:

  • Press the peanut butter dough evenly into the prepared baking pan.

6. Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 18-22 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.

7. Add Chocolate Kisses:

  • Immediately after removing the bars from the oven, press the chocolate kisses into the surface of the bars. The heat from the bars will melt the chocolate slightly, helping it adhere.

8. Cool:

  • Allow the bars to cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.

9. Serve:

  • Once cooled, cut the bars into squares and serve.

These Peanut Butter Blossom Bars offer the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate in a convenient bar form. They are perfect for holidays, parties, or whenever you’re craving a delicious treat. Enjoy!
