Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars














I said "no" to Pinterest for months, and a few weeks back I caved, and now I am addicted! It is such a great place to find inspiration for everything. From entertaining, to your home, to your wardrobe, to your organizational skills and my personal favorite of course- cooking! I am shocked that I only have 29 food pins thus far, but I can assure you that number is going to quickly become my largest board.

My husband needed to make dessert for a community service project and I had "pinned" these decadent bars and knew this was what I had to make. These peanut butter and chocolate bars are heaven. They are rich and definitely not bikini friendly but after you indulge you will not regret it. These puppies are worth each and every calorie. After all, it's not even Memorial Day weekend yet, you 've got plenty of time!
