Microwave Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

MAKES
15 to 18 bars
COOK TIME
6 Min

If you thought the dynamic duo of peanut butter and jelly is just for sandwiches - think again! This lunchtime classic is now a fun dessert that can be ready in just 10 minutes!

What You'll Need

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup strawberry jelly, jam or preserves

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the jelly. Beat with an electric beater on medium speed for 2 minutes, or until blended and crumbly; set aside 1 cup of the mixture.
  2. Spread the remaining mixture over the bottom of a microwave-safe 9" x 13" baking dish. Spread the jelly evenly over the top and crumble the reserved peanut butter mixture over the top.
  3. Microwave at 70% power for 6 minutes. Allow to cool then cut into bars.

Notes

You can use your microwave to melt peanut butter, which comes in handy when you're making recipes that call for peanut butter to be swirled through cakes and brownies, and also when you just want to make it easier to spread.
