Chef Sawyer is back, and if you like peanut butter and chocolate, this Peanut Butter Cup Bars is the recipe for you! Chef Sawyer is whipping up this easy-to-make, melt-in-your-mouth recipe in today’s Baby Gizmo video.

This recipe is so easy to do that kids can make it! It combines our favorite peanut butter cup candies with a moist, ooey-gooey peanut butter and chocolate chip bar. It’s a cookie meets a dessert bar meets a candy bar type of dessert. Who doesn’t like that, amIright?

Sawyer was so excited to make these bars this weekend, that he put on his apron and chef hat first thing on Saturday morning and got to work. The whole family LOVED the finished product but my diet goals didn’t appreciate it very much. It’s all about moderation, right?! 🙂

Watch as Sawyer takes you step-by-step on how to make these easy Peanut Butter Cup bars! He’s love to hear your feedback so feel free to leave a comment here on the post or on the video!
