Bars & Squares, Chocolate

Peanut Butter Cup Bars

February 14, 2017

Husband, take note. The way to my heart is with peanut butter and chocolate. 

Hands down the best, most delicious, flavour combination. You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate. 

Valentine’s Day has become the hallmark holiday for heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. However, those chocolates are usually waxy, filled with cherry goo (yuck), and milk chocolate creations. Unless, you shell out the big bucks. 

OR – you could take the square approach, and make these Peanut Butter Cup Bars that are sure to beat out any store-bought confections. 

I had made these puffed rice bars once before with brown rice syrup and wasn’t too impressed because they got too soggy. This time, I took a recipe from Minimalist Baker’s new cook book and adapted it – it was definitely a winner.

The recipe is simple to make, and only requires minimal chill time before you get to indulge in this delicious treat. And bonus, you can make these as often as you like – like, once a week. No need for a holiday to indulge. 

Plus, you don’t need a valentine to make these. I urge you to make them for yourself – just try not to eat the entire pan in one day – or do.

(for chocolate later, melt dark chocolate and coconut oil)
