Oh Baby Baby

Wednesday night I was simply minding my own business.
I swear, I really was.
I was reading Jenna's blog, and came across her recipe for Oh Baby bars.
I have never had Oh Baby bars before.
But I had to make them.
Right then and there.
There was no time to waste.

And oh goodness, they were amazing.
So easy to make, and so enjoyable.
I ate one.  or two.  okay, maybe it was three.  
I brought the rest to swim practice before I gained 5 pounds, and everyone raved about them.

Oh Baby Bars

You'll need:

4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter

14 ounces milk chocolate
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 tablespoons butter

Blend together the sugars, butter, and peanut butters.  Press into a 9x13 inch pan lined with parchment paper.
Melt to chocolates and butter in a microwave safe dish in the microwave.  Melt in 20 second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth.

Pour the chocolate over the peanut butter mixture.  Place in the fridge for an hour to harden.  
Cut into squares.


*You may be wondering why everything is doubled here and it's not at Jenna's site.  I didn't have enough batter or chocolate to fill the 9x13 inch pan, even when I pressed it very thin, so I had to make a second batch.  it's easy to make so it's no big deal, but i'd thought i'd note that.  it could be due to the fact that I used mainly crunchy peanut butter, but you never know.
