Brown sugar blondies topped with peanut butter filling, peanuts, and salted caramel.
If you follow me over on instagram , then you probably already know that my little family moved from Moab back to our home in Salt Lake City. It all happened very quickly, and though we miss the desert something fierce, we’re overjoyed to be back in the city. It’s almost like we never left.
The last month has been stressful, and my waistline shows it. I’m such a stress-eater and I’ve been eating my feelings in the form of burgers, pizza, ice cream, cookies, and too much wine.
These salted caramel peanut bars were one of the last recipes I photographed before packing up my studio, and the cookie-meets-candy bar combo really hit the spot. I have to admit it, I ate way too many of these:
We can’t move into the house until when?? Well, I guess I better eat another cookie bar!
These bars are made up of three layers— a simple brown sugar cookie base, a nougat-like filling made with marshmallow fluff and peanut butter, peanuts, and a topping of caramel and sea salt. Yep, three layers of WOW. It’s a sweet-and-salty lover’s dream.
They’re a fun treat that everyone needs to make and enjoy once (or twice, or a hundred times, no judging).
Now that most of the moving boxes are unpacked and life is starting to slow down a bit, I’m trying to reign in the sweets some, but I can’t resist baking up a batch of these again asap. This time maybe I’ll share.
Take these simple steps to get neat, pretty slices of cookie bars or brownies every time.
