The Pin Junkie: Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I usually try not to make too many desserts from Pinterest.  Desserts on Pinterest look delicious but they often have WAY too much butter, sugar, fat, and calories.  These chocolate peanut butter bars are certainly no exception.  They have their fair share (and more!) of butter, sugar, and calories, but sometimes the sweet tooth kicks in and I've got to have something sweet and yummy!

I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love chocolate and peanut butter.  So it's no surprise that one of my favorite candies is Reese's peanut butter cups and these chocolate peanut butter bars taste just like them!

The nice thing about Reese's peanut butter cups is that only two pieces come in a package so there's some kind of portion control built in.  This recipe makes a whole pan!  You've got to use some serious will power not to eat them all!  I tried to help myself by cutting the recipe in half and only making half a portion.

Looking back at the recipe, I realize I missed a step and I didn't melt the chocolate and peanut butter together for the chocolate topping.  I just put melted chocolate on top which would explain why it was a little tricky to cut.  Hmmm . . .  I may have to make them again!

Yeah, these chocolate peanut butter bars taste great, but here's some more reasons to love 'em:  no baking required and only five ingredients needed.  Get the recipe here.

  14. Peanut butter bars are one of our families favorites. Because I am not a huge chocolate lover I frost them with a very light milk chocolate frosting. Chocolate lovers would die for these! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
