I received this recipe from a friend...
Who received it from a co-worker...
Who got it who knows where.
And does it really matter at this point?
And pretty quick for a not-so-little weeknight dessert treat.
I had to make a couple of adjustments based on what was available in my pantry. But otherwise it's pretty much exactly as printed.
Hope you try it.
YOU WILL NEED:
9 x 13 casserole dish (use butter or non-stick spray then set aside)
oven to 350
12 tablespoons butter (gulp.....sorry.....)
3/4 cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy is fine)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt (I had salted butter so I omitted the extra salt here)
1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts
2 cups bittersweet chocolate
1/2 - 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate
Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla on medium high speed.
Batter may not get completely smooth but that's okay.
Scrape sides of mixing bowl and give it all a few more turns in the mixer.
Add flour, baking soda and salt if using.
Mix until no white streaks remain.
Add chopped peanuts and chocolate chips.
Batter will be pretty thick.
Spread all this into the baking/casserole dish.
Bake 25-30 minutes.
Let cool about 10 minutes before cutting.
