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!
