Good morning and Happy Valentines Day! My high school friends and I got together last night for a lingerie exchange party… so fun! All you ladies should definitely get together and do this with your girlfriends!
It’s peanut butter jelly time! My friend Stephanie and I love the peanut butter and jelly bars from Goddess and the Grocer so I decided to make my own!
Peanut Butter and Jelly Barsusing 3 ingredients
- 1 pouch of store bought peanut butter cookie mix (yes, I cheated)
- 1 jar of strawberry jam
- 2/3 cup chopped peanuts
Prepare cookie mix according to directions
Spread 2/3 of the dough in a prepared cake pan
*make sure you spray the pan with non stick cooking spray
spread the jam evenly over the dough
TIP: mix the jam up before adding to the dough so it will spread evently
drop small globs of the remaining peanut butter dough over the jam don’t worry if the jam isn’t covered
Bake for 40 minutes at 375 degrees, sprinkling the chopped peanuts over the bars half way through cooking. You can use any kind of jam you like, I prefer strawberry jam (not jelly) because I like the texture. make sure you let them cool completely before cutting into bars yummy, gooey, peanut butter and jelly happiness!
Make these for your Valentines Day sweetie!
I personally think Valentines Day is the greatest excuse to eat all the chocolate I want.
Have a great day!
