No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

 You really should cut these before they harden.  I made up this clone of Reese’s peanut butter cups and let them go too long.  It was a chore to find a piece that was pretty enough for a picture!

Now with Easter coming up, if you want to save yourself some money and make homemade Peanut Butter Eggs, mold the peanut butter mixture into egg shapes on a cookie sheet and freeze until solid. Dip into melted chocolate and store in fridge.  I have seen these at other times of the year dipped in chocolate, too.  So don’t limit yourself to Easter!

  4. >How funny! I was just thinking about this yesterday. When I was in elementary school our school would make a dessert like this and my mom finally got the recipe because I loved it so much. Yesterday as I ate a spoon of peanut butter this came to mind and I though how good it would be! Glad I kept looking down further on your posts.
