Servings 24 bars

Ingredients
  

Peanut butter bar layer

  • cup unsalted butter, very soft
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Fluff layer

  • 1 ¼ cups maple syrup
  • teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions
 

Peanut butter bar layer

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9x13 inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together until combined.
  • Add in the peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla and beat to combine.
  • Use a spatula to fold in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Spread evenly into prepared pan and bake for 28-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a moist crumb.
  • Let cook in pan for 5 minutes and then lift out and let cool completely on a wire rack.

Fluff layer

  • Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and whip the egg whites to soft peaks on medium speed.
  • At the same time, place maple syrup and salt in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Continue boiling until the mixture reaches 240°F on a thermometer.
  • When the syrup reaches 240°F, reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add maple syrup. Increase the speed to medium-high and whip for about 7 minutes - the marshmallow crème is stiff and glossy.
  • Add the vanilla and whip an additional 2 minutes.
  • Frost cooled peanut butter bars, cut into 24 bars and enjoy!

Notes

Cover and store leftover bars at room temperature for up to a week.
