Hey all!!! Sorry For the long delay in posts. For those who don’t know, I have recently relocated (once again) to Washington State from Florida. It’s been quite a full load!! Got a little (ok a lot) lax with my workouts, but am planning on starting up a couple new challenges once I get moved in to my own place! In the mean time I’ve been trying to at least do a few push-ups, squats, and crunches in the meantime as to not get rusty 🙂 I also found a great kettle-bell workout! It’s killer on the arms, legs, and core!

But onto the main event!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars!

So Good! So Easy! And sooooo for a cheat day or party!! haha but seriously it’s fantastic and easy. It’s a great recipe to cook with kids due to its simplicity!

Just start with 1 cup of melted butter

Add 2 cups of crushed graham crackers (or crumbs)

Then add 2 cups of powdered sugar

And finally 1 1/2 cups of creamy peanut butter

Give them a nice mix (you can also use a food processor to achieve a smoother texture. I liked that the graham crackers were still a little crunchy)

Then smooth the mixture into a lightly buttered 9×13 (This is what I used, but I think a smaller dish such as a 9×9 would work for a thicker bar)

For the topping

Use 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter

and about 10oz of chocolate (crushed, crumbled, chips, or otherwise broken up)

I missed this step so here's a cute pic of my dog sleeping :-)

Melt it in the microwave for about 1 min (continue to heat in 10 sec increments if it needs more time)

Spread it as evenly as possible on top of the peanut butter mixture.

Chill in the fridge for at least an hour, cut, and enjoy!!

 

I hope you all like it and would love to know if you give it a try!
