  • ¼ cup sugar
  • cup flour
  • cup butter (softened but not melted)
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • teaspoons milk
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a 9 x 9 inch pan with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together sugar and flour, and cut the 2/3 cup butter in with a butter knife. Keep cutting it in the mixture until it has formed evenly-sized crumbs.
  • Press the mixture into the bottom of the 9 x 9 inch pan, and bake for 20 minutes - until the edges start to turn a golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let it cool completely.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.
  • Spread over the top of the cooled shortbread mixture (it may be kind of thick, so you may have to flatten it with your fingers).
  • In a microwave safe bowl, mix together the chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave for 1 minute, and then remove and stir. Continue to microwave the chocolate mixture in 15 second intervals until it is completely smooth.
  • Pour chocolate over top the peanut butter layer and let it cool.
  • Once the chocolate has hardened, cut into squares with a warm knife (that will give them a cleaner cut).
