Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Besides peanut butter and chocolate, peanut butter and jelly is one kick butt flavor combination. I have always loved PB&J sandwiches. I remember coming back from dinner in the dorms at college, where the food wasn't always the greatest, and making myself triple decker PB&J sandwiches. I still love a good one, although I don't put away the triple deckers like I used to. So making these was a natural transition...


Soft peanut butter cookie on the bottom, sweet jelly in the middle, chopped salty peanuts on top...


These are really really yummy. But you definitely need something to drink with them, they are stick to the roof of your mouth good!!


I knew somebody at work a few years ago who was Irish and he could not understand the American obsession with peanut butter. It was hard for me to put into words the awesomeness that is peanut butter, but I bet these bars would have done the trick. If you would like to try them for yourself, check out the recipe on the My Baking Addiction's blog...HERE!!

Happy Monday everyone, and thanks for stopping by!
