Tagalong Cookie Bars

I have surely mentioned the division in our household when it comes to chocolate peanut butter desserts. I, along with my two oldest, love them. The hubby and my youngest, do not. The hubby mentioned the staff at one of his clinics dropped some hints that they’d like me to share one of my treats. These Girl Scout inspired cookie bars immediately came to mind. I trimmed the edges and had to sample for quality control. They passed my scrutinizing with flying colors! I think the folks at Major Hospital were pleased, too.

Adapted from Averie Cooks via Hugs and Cookies XOXO

Ingredients

Cookie Crust

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Chocolate Topping

  • 8 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate bars, I used Ghirardelli
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick foil. Set aside.
  3. To make the crust, put all ingredients into a bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix to a crumbly dough. Press into the pan and prick it with a fork all over. Bake 12 minutes just to set it, not brown it.
  4. To make the filling, combine the melted butter with the other ingredients and stir until smooth.
  5. Use an offset spatula to spread the peanut butter mixture over the warm crust.
  6. To make the chocolate topping, microwave the chocolate and oil just till melted and stir smooth.
  7. Pour over the peanut butter layer and smooth with an offset spatula. Chill for a couple hours, then bring to room temperature to cut and serve.

  1. To say I’ve been on a peanut butter cup kick lately would be an understatement… These cookies sound amazing:@)

  2. OMG – these look amazing!! Yes, please.

  3. Claudia Lamascolo says:

    thats a brilliant idea much easier than the traditional cookie love these!

  4. Gorgeous! I think you’ve got the GS beat!

  5. We adore peanut butter! These bars look awesome, Liz.

  6. Wow my kids would be all over those!

  7. You are an absolute master at the perfectly cut squares and bars! These would be a hit at my house, JT loves chocolate and PB. I bet they would even be tasty if frozen!!!

  8. OH EM GEE! These look amazing, Liz! I’m squarely on the YES to peanut butter desserts side, so these would last maybe five minutes in my kitchen. Have a great week!

  9. Utterly, hopelessly, addictive recipe I cannot wait to try. Maybe today, if I get lucky!

  10. We are peanut all the way in my home so these would be devoured. I think quality control sampling is ALWAYS a must 😉

  11. Oh those lucky staffers! Those look perfect. You probably didn’t even have to share your quality control samples :). Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  12. Ooooh looks sooooo yummy, Liz!!!

  13. Oh, My! These cookie bars look scrumptious. I could eat the whole pan all by myself.

  14. I always default to Reese’s peanut butter cups when I’m having a breakdown! Think I better keep some of these in the depths of my freezer. As for trimming the edges and evening up-as manservant says-that’s his job and I’m always grateful if there is some left!

  15. Oh Liz, these look like sin on a plate. Yum.

  16. Woo hoo! We love PB here! These cookie bars rule, a must try. Thanks for the recipe, Liz!

  17. these cookie bars look heavenly Lizzy !!!

  18. Such perfect bars, Liz! Love those layers! 🙂

  19. They look so perfect! I just noticed Laura also said that. 😉

  20. OMG! I’m with you I love PB desserts and treats and I know I would love these.

  21. Judith B. Hall says:

    These look amazing! How do you cut them to keep the edges so perfect?

  22. Do you spray your pan?

    • Hi, Vetta, I use non-stick foil, so it doesn’t need to be sprayed. If you use regular foil, just spray with your favorite non-stick cooking spray. Hope you enjoy!!!

  23. Carlos at Spoonabilities says:

    Great idea and look so yummy

  24. Tamra Phelps says:

    These sound great! Now, if you could just come up with a bar that tastes like the Girl Scout Cookie Lemonades! I love those!

  25. #Yummy and yes please! You are indeed a Good Scout to share this scrumptious recipe =) P.s. One of these days you may be swayed to the perfection of a PB sandwich. Tee hee!

  26. I just made these this past weekend and OMG, you did not lie when you said they are just like the cookie! So many recipes claim they taste just like the original, just because they happen to use the same flavors, but no, these were identical to the girlscout cookes. Actually, I’d say they are even BETTER because unlike those skimpy little Tagalongs, you get a good amount of peanut butter, shortbread, and chocolate in every bite. These are my new go-to recipe—they’re easy to make, and use ingredients I always have. In fact, I’m planning to make a giant pan for my church cafe this weekend! Thanks for the amazing and simple recipe! I’ll definitely be checking out (and trying) more of your recipes! 🙂

  27. Oh my glorious goodness!! Tagalongs are my FAVE — and these look amazing.

  28. I get the feeling I wouldn’t be shipping these out of the house!

  29. Tagalongs are my fave GS cookie and these bars are just 1 more way to enjoy the pb/choc goodness, mmmm!
