Here's one of my late night baking adventures again in which I started looking through my Company's Coming chocolate squared book and I came across these delicious looking chocolate peanut butter bars. 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.
The recipe in Company's Coming chocolate squared directions are short and sweet.The ingredients are not expensive and are easy to find in any grocery store. 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!
