  3. Peanut Butter Fingers Recipe

Growing up, I have vivid memories of bars (some may call them bar cookies). When someone would stop by our house on short notice or if we had a church event, a pan of bars was always the answer. The type of bar was decided by Mom, and while they periodically changed, she had her playlist of greatest hits, none of which I ever got tired of.

Here in the Midwest, bars are iconic. From Ohio to… wherever the Midwest ends, stop by a small community, and you’ll find someone willing to share their go-to bar recipe. And why are they so iconic? Well, they’re usually made from ingredients that most people always have on hand. Really, food is just a means of expressing ourselves, and having recipes I (and so many others) can count on is exactly what I love. These peanut butter fingers have always been a family favorite: grandma made them, mom makes them, and now I make them too!

Servings 24 bars


For the bars

  • ½ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • cup peanut butter
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the glaze

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 3-5 tbsp heavy cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, or by hand, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 4 minutes.
  • Scrape the bowl and add the egg, peanut butter, baking soda, salt, and vanilla. Mix to incorporate, 2 minutes.
  • Add flour and rolled oats. Mix until no streaks of flour remain, 1 minute.
  • Spray a 9×13 baking pan with nonstick spray and spread batter evenly to the corners and sides.
  • Bake until the edges are set and the center soft, 18-23 minutes.
  • While the bars are baking, prepare the peanut butter glaze. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, peanut butter, and cream. Whisk until smooth and the mixture is thickened, but runny, making ribbons on itself. Set aside until ready to use.
  • When the bars are finished baking, remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Let the chocolate chips melt for 5 minutes then spread evenly over the bars.
  • Drizzle the prepared peanut butter glaze over the chocolate and spread with an offset spatula slightly mixing the glaze and chocolate. Allow the chocolate and glaze to set before cutting, 2 hours.
  • Cut into "finger" sized bars and enjoy!
