Chocolate and peanut butter. It’s probably my favorite flavor combination on earth. It’s addicting. There should be a support group for people like me. Please tell me I’m not alone. If you make me chocolate & peanut butter anything, you’re a friend for life. It’s just that simple.
These Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars I’m sharing today are crazy good. Easy to make. Addicting. Decadent. Rich. Almost like fudge, melt in your mouth. . .goodness.
A tall glass of ice-cold milk is mandatory with one of these babies and a small pan can make A LOT of people very happy. Why? Because you really only need a small square to satisfy your chocolate and peanut butter cravings. They’re rich, so I wouldn’t go and eat the whole pan yourself, or you’re going to have bigger problems than just feelings of guilt. Trust me. These bars are to share with friends.
They also freeze well, so if you just want to enjoy a few at a time, that’s definitely an option, too. If you’re interested in joining the chocolate & peanut butter support group that I mentioned previously, email me and we’ll talk. Maybe over milk and one of these bars. 🙂
