These Chocolate Crunch Bars have a cake-like crust with a gooey marshmallow center and chocolate peanut butter krispie frosting!
Hi friends! Happy Monday! We had such a busy weekend! Did you, too? Josh and I went up north to our lake cabin to open it up for the summer. It was so nice to see all the ice off of the lake. It’s about time! I cleaned the cabin from top to bottom, and it’s officially ready for Memorial weekend (which will be here before we know it)!
I also have some travel this week that I’m super excited about. I’m headed to Las Vegas for a retreat with some of my closest blogging buddies! This is going to be the first time I get to meet all of them in person, and I am beyond excited. The long weekend will be filled with lots of sharing, learning, eating and laughing of course. I. CANNOT. WAIT.
Life has been busy to say the least, so I’m popping in today with a shorter post than maybe what you’re used to from me, but a post all the same, with a wonderful recipe I couldn’t wait to share. These Chocolate Crunch Bars have so much going on! They have a cake-like crust with a gooey marshmallow center and chocolate peanut butter krispie frosting! Soft. Gooey. Crispy. Check. Check. Check.
This is a wonderful dessert to take to a potluck or picnic just like these Sugar Cookie Cake Bars or my favorite O’Henry Bars. The bars cut really nice and they’re just a joy to eat. They’re bound to become a family favorite for sure!

This looks really good, but how much chocolate chips are in them! My guess would about 1 cup?
Thank you Marie for catching that! I just updated the recipe. I usually use 6 ounces of chocolate chips. I bet you could get away with a cup though to make them even more decadent. 😉
Oh how yummy these look
