Want an easy treat kids and adults will love? Try these peanut butter fudge bars. With only 4 pantry staples, they can be made in a snap. They taste like a peanut butter cookie mixed with a fudgy brownie. We thought these moist and chewy bars are best served warm. Just heat in the microwave for 15 seconds if you have leftovers. They're perfect as an after-school snack.

Ingredients For easy peanut butter fudge bars

  • 1 box
    fudge brownie mix (18.25 oz.)
  • 1 pkg
    peanut butter cookie mix (17.5 oz)
  • 1/2 c
    peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 c
    semi-sweet chocolate chips

How To Make easy peanut butter fudge bars

  • Brownie batter in a mixing bowl with peanut butter chips.
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl mix the brownie mix as directed. Add the peanut butter chips to the batter.
  • Cookie batter in a mixing bowl with chocolate chips.
    In another bowl, mix the cookie mix as directed (omitting the egg). Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter.
  • Brownie batter poured into a parchment paper-lined baking dish.
    Spray a 13x9 baking pan with non-stick spray or place parchment paper in the pan. Spread the brownie batter into the pan.
  • Cookie batter dropped onto the brownies.
    Take the peanut butter batter and drop spoonfuls over the brownie batter.
  • Cooled, baked bars cut in squares.
    Bake for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick is inserted and comes out almost clean. Be careful not to overbake. It is better if it is just a tad bit underdone. Let cool and cut into bars.
