Peanut butter lovers will be knocking at your door when they hear you’ve pulled these bars out of the oven! If you have a fear of sweetened condensed milk, now’s the time to set it aside and get on the chocolate and peanut butter band wagon. These are best when they’ve been allowed to rest and cool completely. They’re even better the next day.
When I made these, the kids were like vultures. It didn’t take long for the plate to become more and more visible as bar after bar was lifting from its surface. These are a bit addicting and rather rich, so be careful! You might over do it! These use semisweet chocolate chips, but if you prefer, you could substitute dark chocolate or even milk chocolate.
They are perfect for packing and taking along, great for picnics, parties, and even for packing into lunches. Cut into small piece for bite sized fun snacks.
I wonder how these would be if you used crunchy peanut butter? Great I bet! I’m more of a creamy peanut butter person myself, though as a child it had to be crunchy on my PB&J’s! Mom always made sure there was crunchy peanut butter in the pantry for me.
As you can see, you will lift the entire dessert out of the pan to cut it. Since it’s best to wait until they have completely cooled to cut them, store them on a cutting board covered with foil if you are taking them with you. Then, simply cut them when you’ve reached your destination.
Hope you enjoy these treats, until next time!
