If  your into chocolate, peanut butter and rich tasting treats, well this is something for you. What sold me about this recipe was the beautiful appearance of these bars and how easy the directions were to make them.

If you enjoy the texture of chewy,crunchy and smooth along with a rich, sweet, chocolaty and peanut butter flavor then you must try this recipe out.They are a great dinner dessert, a party treat, or a treat to share out with a gathering of family and friends.This is a treat when given to someone creates a big smile on there face  because of the bars great appearance, its rich sweet flavor and its intoxicating aroma of chocolate and peanut butter all working together to force you to devour every little crumb of it.

So there really is no excuse or reason not to make these bad boys and devour them on sight. So let your baking take you on a new adventure of discovery to find out what you may like in a treat and make it better.Enjoy your baking! Enjoy!
