Easy, simple and quick peanut butter bars! If you’re a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or (homemade) peanut butter ball fan, this one’s got your name written all over it! This recipe has all the taste you love with a no fuss approach, without worrying about forming perfectly shaped balls or ensuring the chocolate coating is 'just so' on your cookie. In fact, we like them rustic and real. We cut ours into smaller pieces, for me, and bigger pieces for him…but the funny part is, we both love the little jagged imperfect pieces (that you see in the main picture) best of all! For a no bake option, skip the crunchy base and just line the bottom of a pan with parchment and start with the peanut butter filling.

This is a lovely dessert recipe for all the peanut butter and chocolate fans in your life. Not too sweet (you can bump up the sweetener for your own family’s taste), creamy peanut butter and loads of chocolate crunch. Its the perfect idea for a Christmas time treat!

Method

Instructions

1

For the base

Prepare a 9×13 inch pan by lining it with parchment paper

Combine all ingredients and press into the prepared pan pan.

Bake at 300 for ten minutes. I placed a piece of tin foil over the top so my crust wouldn’t burn.

Removed tin foil, turn off the oven and put the crust back in the oven again for 5 minutes under residual heat.

Remove from heat and set aside to chill

 

For the Filling

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients, mix well

Spread evenly over the cooled base. Set aside

 

For the chocolate topping:

Add chocolate and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 15 seconds bursts until fully melted, or melt in a double boiler. When the chocolate and peanut butter have melted, stir in the remaining ingredients.

Spread the chocolate topping over top of the peanut butter mixture evenly

Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.

Don't forget those jagged little pieces, they really are the best!
