Ten years ago, I met Paul. And, regularly for the past 10 years, he's hounded me to make Peanut Butter Swirl Bars, a decadent treat his mother made when he was a child.
This weekend, I decided that it would be a perfect recipe to make with my sous chef Mitchell.
Oh, they were delish! Just check out Mitchell enjoying them!
Peanut Butter Swirl Bars
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/3 c. butter

In a separate bowl, blend together dry ingredients flour and baking soda. Fold into peanut butter mixture.
