I am not the type of girl who sticks a spoon into a jar of peanut butter and eats it plain. Not my style. I am, however, the type of girl who loves her peanut butter with chocolate. They were made for each other after all, right?
Every now and then I need to get my peanut butter fix and this week was just one of those weeks. One of my co-workers brought in a bag of Reese’s peanut butter eggs and they were gone almost instantly. People just can’t seem to say no to the powerful duo. Having had my fair share of eggs at work, I wanted a way to satisfy my peanut butter and chocolate craving at home. Cue chocolate peanut butter bars.
These blissful bars have a shortbread base topped with peanut butter filling and a chocolate coating. They are incredibly easy to make and satisfy that craving I was talking about. The smooth texture of chocolate and peanut butter is simply irresistible. Pop these chocolate peanut butter bars in the freezer and enjoy a melt in your mouth treat. They stay fresh longer that way too!
