I forgot how good these peanut butter bars really are! I’ve been craving them for a few weeks, in a way that Reese’s Peanut Butter cups just couldn’t curb. Made with ingredients I already had on hand, these quick and easy to make treats were a big hit at an office potluck last week.
Peanut butter and chocolate, oh how I love thee together! In a raving sweet tooth moment (or stress induced eating), I’ve been known to do this… Don’t judge!
My mom used to make these peanut butter bars when I was a kid. I haven’t made them in a long time, but now that I’ve had them again, it won’t be long before I make them again. I made them for a work tailgating potluck last week and they disappeared pretty fast.

I prefer serving/eating these slightly chilled. I find they set well, but on a warm day they will melt pretty quickly. At room temperature they hold up fine for a few hours. I use both milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can use all of one or the other to your taste though (or what you have on hand).
