Updated: Jan 27, 2023

This is a vintage take on a modern classic. The Peanut Butter Blossoms are seen on every cookie platter during the holidays. There is something about that peanut butter/chocolate pairing that just hits the spot every time.

These bars require a little more time to prepare, but trust me they are worth it. They're soft and full of that peanut butter flavor everyone loves. The chocolate glaze adds to the partnership by giving a sweet taste to every bite.


Peanut Butter Fingers with a Chocolate Glaze

makes 12 fingers

Prep Time: 10 minutes + 24 hours cooling time

Cook Time: 25-30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes + 24 hours cooling time

Cuisine: American

Special Tools: None

Course: Dessert


  • 1 1/3 cup flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup butter softened at room temp

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed

  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Day 1:

  1. Begin by combining all dry ingredients in a medium bowl: flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer (or using a hand mixer), beat together your butter and sugars. Continue to beat until light and fluffy.

  3. Add in your oil and peanut butter, beat until combined.

  4. One at a time, add your egg and egg yolk. Beat well between each addition.

  5. Finish by adding your vanilla extract. Scrape the bowl and mix one last time to make sure everything is evenly mixed.

  6. Cover the dough and place in the fridge for 24-36 hours.

Day 2:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Spray an 8x8 pan with nonstick cooking spray and line with parchment paper. Keep two sides overhanging the pan for easy removal.

  2. Press your peanut butter batter down into the prepared pan. Use your hands or a spatula to make sure it is evenly spaced.

  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is dry.

  4. Remove from oven and cool completely. Before cutting, place in freezer for up to 10 minutes to ensure smooth cutting lines.

  5. Make the Chocolate Glaze by adding your chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, and salt in a medium microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each.

  6. Once the chocolate is melted and the peanut butter bars are nice and cold, cut the bars into 12 long bars. Spoon the chocolate glaze over each bar, or dip the bars top side down into the chocolate glaze.

  7. Place in fridge to let the chocolate set. Once set, remove and store in an airtight container.
