Zebra Peanut Butter Bars
Yield: 9"x13" Pan (about 28 medium-sized squares)
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Peanut Butter Layer
1 cup Butter, melted 1⁄2 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
1⁄2 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
2 cups Powdered Sugar 16 Graham Crackers, ground
Chocolate Swirl Layer 1 1⁄2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, melted 1/3 cup White Chocolate Chips, melted
4 1⁄2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, divided and melted
1. Prepare the peanut butter layer: in a large bowl, mix together all peanut butter layer ingredients. Press into a foil-lined 9”x13” pan.
2. Prepare the chocolate swirl layers: In one small bowl, stir together the semi-sweet chocolate chips and 4 tablespoons of the melted coconut oil. Spread in an even layer of the peanut butter layer.
3. In a second small bowl, stir together the white chocolate chips and 1⁄2 tablespoon of the coconut oil. Place into a piping bag (or a ziploc sandwich bag with a corner cut) and pipe straight lines across the semi-sweet chocolate layer. Take a toothpick and run through the lines creating a swirled effect. (see image below).
4. Let set in the refrigerator 30-60 minutes and then slice and serve.
