Shhhh, don't tell anyone, but I have a new blog crush! I visit regularly and there are always new recipes and treats posted! I don't know how I first came across Culinary in the Country, but I've been bookmarking and filing away recipes to try at a later time. The first recipe I made was a hit! So why not try one of the sweet treats.

I'm surprised how quickly these treats were assembled. It took me longer to do the dishes than it did for me to get this all moving along. After a cooling for an hour, we snuck a taste...YUM...after sitting and resting over night...I liked them even better! I brought most of the bars to work and they were eaten up in minutes! Score!!! Thanks Joe.

Peanut Butter Cup Bars

Recipe at Culinary in the Country

The recipe called for mini Peanut Butter mini, chocolate chip size, not minature. Since I couldn't find the mini's, I went with the minature's and cut them in quarters.

The shortbread crust.

The condensed milk and peanut butter chip mixture...OH!!! I just realized I forgot the vanilla!!! Ooops...I put a little vanilla in the shortbread, so it's there, just not in that mix...oops!

The final creation before it's time in the hot box.

My treats are done! And they were delicious.
PS: I used the recycleable aluminum pan...great for bringing to work; it doesn't have to come home!

I think any cookie that involves condensed milk is a winner. I used to make a recipe for a former roommate called Grandma's mistake that involved condensed milk, graham crackers, coconut, chocolate chips, and marshmallows.

I love the idea of using the bigger "mini" PB cups - I'm more likely to have them on hand anyway! Glad to hear you liked them!

Trader Joe's sells the mini peanut butter cups. I really enjoy your blog.
