Here is the scenario: It is late. You are tired. And your husband needs dessert. A chocolate dessert. What do you do?
You make the most wonderful dessert that involves no baking, no fancy ingredients – in only a few minutes. I usually always have these ingredients on hand, and can whip up this dessert in under 10 minutes.
Excited? Here it is – the best dessert ever. Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
- 7 Tablespoons Butter
- ¾ cup creamy Peanut Butter
- 1½ cup Powdered Sugar
- 10 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Melt 6 tablespoons of the butter and the peanut butter in the microwave (about 1 minute) until smooth. Add powdered sugar. Mix and spread in bottom of 9x9 pan. Melt remaining butter (1 Tablespoon) and chocolate chips on the stovetop until melted. (I used to do this step in the microwave, but it resulted in a lot of burned chocolate. And that tastes bad.) Mix and spread on top of peanut butter mixture. Cover and refrigerate until hard. Cut or break into pieces and enjoy!
Oh – and they taste just like Reese’s – so you might eat the whole bowl of the peanut butter mixture before you even spread it in the pan!
