Peanut Butter + Chocolate Alphabet Cookie Bars (Y-U-M!)


So, for a fun twist on this concept during back to school week this year, I thought it would be cute to literally S-P-E-L-L out some messages for my little one (who just started Kindergarten) and some of her playdate friends using cookies. ;)

So, I made these ++PB+C Alphabet Cookies Bars++ with the Krusteaz Double Peanut Buttercookie mix, a schmear of creamy peanut butter, chocolate frosting, and these small ++Alphabet Cookie Cutters++ that I found on Amazon. You can whip up your favorite chocolate frosting recipe to use in the middle OR make life super easy by using store-bought chocolate frosting…which is the route that I chose. #embraceshortcuts right?!

And speaking of “fun twists”… this post comes with one too. I made these cookie bars on a day when we were having out of town guests over that evening. They were really good friends we’ve had for Y-E-A-R-S that always know to just make themselves at home… unfortunately I didn’t realize until it was too late that a few of them had found these cookie bars and assumed they were fair game for late night dessert.

SO….. I had to photograph the remaining bars for this post using a mix of toy letters and alphabet bars. The silver lining is that the toy letters added a nice pop of color to the images… and now we’ve already come up with a solution you can use at home if you’re suddenly missing a letter or two of your own. ;)

Since this is one of my ++Baker’s Dozen++ recipes for Krusteaz, you’ll find the ++full recipe++ with instructions over on

P.S. This is a fun & simple concept that could work literally ANY time of year, not just for back to school! You can spell out a name, say HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I LOVE YOU, CONGRATS, YOU’RE SWEET, the list goes on… I would really love to find a small cookie cutter # symbol so we can make funny hashtags too. And I’m already planning to make a “HO, HO, HO” version for Christmas using the Krusteaz Sugar Cookie mix + red and white frosting. Fun, right?!
