This is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. The weeks and days leading up to Christmas are so exciting. Decorating the house, trimming the tree,…and my all-time favorite: holiday baking! Of all things, baking for the holidays really puts me in the Christmas spirit. I like to get creative every year by coming up with something different and exciting to add to my dessert trays that nobody has ever seen before. I enjoy switching things up and keeping my family and friends guessing. This is one of those recipes that I am adding to my holiday baking list this year….and so should you!

Delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Bars that are great for the holidays or to give as a gift to someone. Everyone will love these and they are simple to make!

What makes these bars so special is the addition of this new and super fun product – Nestlé® Toll House DelightFulls™ Peanut Butter Filled Morsels. These baking morsels could not be any more perfect because you don’t have to choose between chocolate and peanut butter. They have the best of both worlds: milk chocolate morsels filled with peanut butter! The only thing keeping my hand out of the bag and eating these by the handful was the fact that I didn’t have time to run back out to the store and grab more of these. Otherwise, they would not stand a chance. The peanut butter was my favorite, but they also come in dark chocolate with mint filling, dark chocolate with cherry, and milk chocolate with caramel. They are all so delicious! I can already come up with so many different ways to use them and create truly unique desserts to give them that something “extra”. I use Nestle products quite often (especially their Libby’s pumpkin around this time of the year) and their regular baking morsels, but these Nestlé Toll House DelightFulls are my new favorite to bake with.

Nestlé® Toll House DelightFulls™ Filled Morsels

You will love these bars for the holidays or ANY time of the year. Peanut butter and chocolate are my favorite combination all year ’round (if you feel the same, you might like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Parfaits or these No-Bake Buckeye Bars). These bars have a gooey, toffee-like texture (especially around the edges) so don’t expect them to be fluffy and cake-like as in blondie bars, etc. They are dense, super rich, sweet, and chewy. Perfect in every way.

If you buy the DelightFulls and need some recipe inspiration besides these absolutely delicious chocolate peanut butter bars, Nestle has an abundance of dessert recipes for you to check out on their website! Happy baking, my friends.
