NO BAKE Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
When it comes to delightful confections, these No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are undeniably a frequent creation in my kitchen. The ease of their assembly, the absence of baking, and the universal adoration for peanut butter cups make them a staple.
Furthermore, the ingredients required for this treat are almost always at my disposal. Despite not regularly including biscuits in my weekly shopping list, a bit of exploration in the expansive baskets that hold miscellaneous pantry items often yields some form of suitable biscuit – even if it’s a month past its suggested consumption date. But really, who minds? The conservative nature of expiry dates for dry goods is widely acknowledged, isn’t it?
Interestingly, while compiling the images for this post, I recognized that they don’t form a coherent set. This realization stemmed from the fact that these photos were taken on distinct days. I admit, these visuals come from three separate batches – and counting the step-by-step pictures for the recipe video, it’s four days in total. The motivation to finally undertake this task struck me, and I decided it was time to re-publish the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars recipe along with a video.
Despite the mishmash of photos from multiple instances, the core of this Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars recipe is genuinely invaluable. It was generously shared with me by a reader named Dorothy from Tennessee when I first launched this blog. The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity, comprising only five fundamental ingredients: crackers, peanut butter, chocolate, confectioners’ sugar, and butter. And the most remarkable aspect? No baking required. The most challenging part is waiting for the bars to set.
I tend to approach “5-ingredient” recipes cautiously. Often, many recipes labeled as such include store-bought sauces or similar shortcuts. For instance, a “5-ingredient BBQ chicken” recipe might call for a “bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce.” When confronted with such recipes, my immediate thought is, “That’s taking the easy way out!”
