Food: Peanut Cheese Bar From EarthBound


  • For the Cookie Base:
  • 175g / 1 ¾ Cups Flour
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ Teaspoon Salt
  • 110g / ½ Cup Butter (Softened)
  • 85g / ¾ Cup Caster Sugar/Superfine Sugar
  • 85g / ¾ Cup Soft Brown Sugar
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • For the Chocolate:
  • 150g / 1 Cup Chocolate
  • 55g / ¼ Cup Butter
  • 40g / ¼ Cup Crushed Salted Peanuts
  • For the Peanut Cheese Topping:
  • 225g / 1 Cup Cream Cheese
  • 170g / 2/3 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter (Skippy)
  • 100g / ¾ Cup Icing/Confectioners Sugar
  • 120ml / ½ Cup Whipping Cream


  1. Making the Cookie Base:
  2. Prepare the tin by greasing it with a little butter and lining the base and sides with greaseproof paper/baking parchment. Preheat the oven to 190C/370F.
  3. In a large bowl beat the butter, caster sugar and brown sugar together until creamy. Slowly add the egg and continue to mix.
  4. Gradually sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and mix well until a dough forms. If it’s very soft pop it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  5. Place the dough between two large sheets of cling film/saran wrap and roll the dough out to roughly fit the base of your prepared tray. Transfer it to the tray and lightly press it in until the entire base is covered and even.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Leave to cool while you prepare the chocolate layer.
  7. Making the Chocolate Layer:
  8. Over a bain-marie melt the chocolate with the butter until smooth and shiny. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
  9. Once cooled pour the chocolate over the cookie base and spread it out until even. Sprinkle over the crushed peanuts and with the back of a spoon, gently press them into the chocolate.
  10. Place in the fridge to chill for around 30 minutes while you prepare the peanut cheese topping.
  11. Making the Peanut Cheese Topping:
  12. In a large bowl gently mix together the cream cheese, smooth peanut butter, sugar and cream. Once combined whisk it until pale and fluffy.
  13. Spoon the peanut cheese mixture over the now chilled chocolate layer and smooth it out.
  14. Sprinkle on top a few more crushed salted peanuts if you like, then place in the fridge for several hours until firm and chilled.
  15. Once chilled remove the combination from the tin carefully and cut it into bars.
