  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Handful peanut butter cups, roughly chopped
  1. Line an 8x8 pan with aluminum foil and set aside.

    NoBake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bars. Ok so I have never been a fan of “no bake” desserts. Especially when they sound like they should be baked. But after reading this article and looking at the yummy picture I am drooling and require a bib. Maybe it’s because I am getting older and can appreciate the flavor w/o having to heat up the entire house to achieve it I don’t know but these look fantastic and the recipe sounds really easy.
