Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter #Shortbread Bars

This is one of my favorite’s!  You’ve got to try it! This delicious combination of peanut butter and chocolate in a shortbread is over the top!   

The best part I love about this recipe is that it’s quick and simple.  Sorta like how I do my shopping.  Get it and go. That’s why I always make a list and take it with me.

Because, if I don’t have a list, I will end up going down every isle trying to remember what I need and picking up things I really don’t need.

That’s how I end up spending way more than I wanted to, and still didn’t get everything on my list!  Sound familiar?

This recipe only requires a few ingredients to add to your list.

And you’ll have it made in no time!

A little trick I learned from TidyMom is to first cover your measuring cup with saran wrap before adding peanut butter.  It’s makes it so much easier and less messy!

Easy way to measure

Blend well, then add in flour.
