Chubby Hubby Bars
Chubby Hubby Bars 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp table salt 3/4 cups unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks) room temperature 1 cup packed light brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated white sugar 2 large eggs 1/3 cup chunky peanut butter 1 tbsp vanilla extract 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips divided use 1 1/2 cups chopped pretzels divided use 1/2 cup peanut butter chips Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray (I like the kind that has flour in it.) Put your pretzels in a sealable bag, and chop them up (roughly). I just pound mine with a rolling pin. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Using a mixer, beat together butter, light brown sugar and white sugar at medium speed. Mix until combined and fluffy. Add in eggs, vanilla and peanut butter. On low speed, slowly add in your flour mixture just until it is incorporated into the batter. Now add in 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped pretzels. Stir this mixture up with a spoon, batter will be very stiff. Spread batter into baking pan. In a small bowl, mix together your remaining toppings, 1/2 cup chopped pretzels, 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup peanut butter chips. Sprinkle mixture over top of batter. Bake for about 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
