Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Chunky Bars

I recently made these to help an office day go by a little more smoothly.  Make them as called for, or try different combinations.  Replace the chocolate chips with dried banana chips, peanut chips in the batter with peanuts and the vanilla with banana extract for Chunky Monkey Bars.

  2 Cup All Purpose Flour                                                          1/3 Cup Jif
  1 Tsp Baking Soda                                                                  1 1/4 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  1/2 Tsp Salt                                                                            1 1/4 Cups Pretzels
  3/4 Cup Butter                                                                         Topping
  1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar                                                           1/2 Cup Peanut Butter Chips
  2 Large Egg                                                                            1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
  1 Tbl Vanilla                                                                           

Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x 13 pan with non stick foil.  In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt, set aside.  Use a mixer to beat the sugar and sugar at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and peanut butter.  On low speed, beat in dry ingredients just until incorporated. Stir in 1 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/4 cups pretzel pieces.  Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle peanut butter chips, 1/4 chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped pretzels.  Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
