To bring more awareness to breast cancer this October, ABCD Diaries is participating in a Bake-Off with 19 other blogs. The Bake for the Cure Bakeoff is sponsored by ACH products.The premise is simple: using ACH ingredients (Argo Corn Starch, Karo Corn Syrup, Fleishmann’s Yeast), prepare two recipes per week (Oct. 4 – 20) and post photos of the finished product.So, each week we will be posting 2 recipes, one from the Bake for the Cure Cookbook and one personal favorite. The blogger with the most comments on their recipe posts wins $500, which would truly be a blessing for our family:)
Ooey Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
3/4 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c sugar
1/4 c Argo cornstarch
1/2 c butter or margarine
1/2 Karo Light Corn Syrup
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c creamy peanut butter(we used crunchy)
1 t bourbon vanilla extract
1/4 t salt
1/2 c flaked coconut
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Prep Time:15 min
Bake Time:35-43 min
1. Combine flour, sugar and corn starch in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Press into a greased 13x9 in pan.
2. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until crust is lightly brown.
3. Beat eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips. Pour over crust and return to oven.
4. Bake an additional 20-25 minutes or until mixture is golden. Cool on wire rack and cut into bars.
These were easy to make and quick. They reminded me of the Magic Bars my grandma used to make:) They are SUPER SWEET! We used the crunchy peanut butter in place of the smooth and we really enjoyed the extra crunch. If you are looking for a sweet treat, this is the one for you:)
If you have any ideas on how to spruce this recipe up a bit, your favorite muffin recipe or you just want to help us win the bake off, please leave a comment! Thanks so much and if you try this recipe I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours does:)
