Secret Recipe Club--Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

I belong to The Secret Recipe Club, Amanda is our amazing leader. She works hard to make sure that everyone participating posts at the same time so we can all see who our "Secret Recipe" blogger is. Occasionally life happens. When Amanda found out that one blogger was not being represented she sent out an SOS, several bloggers responded and we are having a special reveal for "Connor's Cooking". I spent 30 minutes enjoying this great blog and found many dishes I wanted to try. I saw a pasta primavera that looked wonderful, several pizzas, ice cream pies and more. But time was ticking and I had to make a choice.
Cookie bars are always top on my list of recipes to try. Basically cookies without all the work, got to love it.

Peanut butter and chocolate, a perfect combination. It was fun coming together and cooking from Connor's Cooking. I hope that you'll check out the Nutella Crêpes which I made from her blog.

Love the addition of M&M's. I've made these bars before, if they are the ones Raina posted from Amanda's Cookin'. They were a big hit and very good.

love the mix of chips in your bar. I too love bars for the same reason, they are much easier and quicker!
