Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

posted by Julie Evink on October 24, 2011

It’s been another month and it’s once again reveal time for Secret Recipe Club. If you haven’t heard of the SRC it is a group of us that get assigned someone else’s blog, try out one of their recipes and then write a post about it. We all reveal our posts and which blog we had on the same day. It’s pretty fun and it makes me go out and look at other blogs that I might not have otherwise and try something new.

This month I had the blog Foodness Gracious. It has a bunch of fun recipes on there so go check it out if you have time. I went with the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Bars. I thought I couldn’t possibly go wrong if it paired chocolate and peanut butter together! The only I might do different is add a little bit more butter. The texture was a bit crumbly when you bit into the bars.

    Anybody who has seen the old Reese’s Peanut butter cup commercials knows that peanut butter and chocolate are perfect bed fellows. Bars are so easy to make, nice choice.

  • Eliotseats

    Yeah, I always think of those Reese’s commercials whenever I see a peanut butter/choco combo. Can there be anything better than this?
