Chubby Hubby Bars Recipe from Just a Pinch

We know dad will be all over these bars, and they are easy enough for the kids to help with – so they can tell dad they made his Father’s Day treats!  Thanks to Sharri from Just a Pinch for sharing the recipe with us.


2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c unsalter butter or margarine (room temperature)
1 c light brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
2 lg eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 c coarsely chopped pretzels
1/4 c peanut butter chips (for top)
1/4 c chocolate chips (for top)
1/4 c coarsely chopped pretzels (for top)


1. Preheat oven to 350. Foil line and spray a 9X13″ pan. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Using a mixer, beat butter and both sugars at medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. On low speed, beat in dry ingredients just until incorporated. I stirred in some chunky peanut butter eye balled about 1/4 cup or so,1 cup chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cups pretzel pieces.

 2. Spread batter evenly in pan. Sprinkle peanut butter chips, 1/4 chocolate chips and 1/4 cup chopped pretzels.

3. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
