Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars

Well, yesterday morning I was woke up by mom yelling that the pig was having piglets (she had 7). And today, we got up about 5:30 am. to go to the Tulsa Fair, because my oldest sister entered some bunnies in the bunny show. We got back late, that's why this post is soo late today :).

Here are a few pics of the animals that were at the petting zoo at the fair.

Anyway, here is the recipe and a picture of the bars. They are just peanut butter cookies spread in a pan with a chocolate addition. They are pretty good, but they were originally named Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars , they weren't chewy but still good. I used rice flour and potato starch, and some xanthan gum. The recipe was from

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars (Gluten-free)
cup gluten-free flour
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup butter, cut into pieces
cup crunchy peanut butter
cup packed brown sugar
egg yolk
teaspoon vanilla
bag (12 oz) dark chocolate chips (2 cups)
cup salted dry-roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch pan with baking spray with flour. In small bowl, stir flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  2. In medium microwavable bowl, place butter and peanut butter. Microwave on High 30 to 45 seconds or until butter is melted. Add brown sugar and egg yolk; stir until mixed. Stir in vanilla and flour mixture. Stir in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips. Spread in pan.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until just firm to the touch. Remove from oven; immediately sprinkle with remaining 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until chips have softened. Spread softened chips evenly over top. Sprinkle with peanuts. Cool on cooling rack. Cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store in airtight container.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
