FOR SERIOUS PEANUT BUTTER LOVERS ONLY!



THIS WAS MY SECOND MONTH PARTICIPATING IN THE SECRET RECIPE CLUB. http://www.amandascookin.com/p/secret-recipe-club.html
EVERYONE IS GIVEN THE NAME OF A BLOG (SECRETLY) AND YOU CHOOSE ONE RECIPE TO MAKE FROM THAT BLOG. THEN, EVERYONE POSTS AT THE SAME TIME ON THE SAME GIVEN DAY....TODAY!!!!
I RECEIVED THE BLOG TITLED, A SPOONFUL OF THYME. A BEAUTIFUL BLOG THAT YOU MUST VISIT. OF COURSE, WHEN I SAW A COOKIE BAR INCLUDING PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE, I KNEW IT HAD MY NAME WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!!
I BASICALLY FOLLOWED THE RECIPE AS WRITTEN. I DID ADD ALL OF THE CHIPS AT ONCE INSTEAD OF RESERVING SOME FOR THE TOP AND ONCE COOLED I DECORATED WITH MELTED CHOCOLATE, REESE'S PIECES AND CHOPPED PEANUT BUTTER CUPS. YOU KNOW I NEED MY "WONKA" TOUCH AT ALL TIMES.
THANKS FOR THIS SINFUL RECIPE KATE!

Chocolate Peanut Buddy Bars

1 cup creamy or chunky peanut butter
6 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

"You got your chocolate in my peanut butter, no you got your peanut butter in my chocolate"....showing my age (old Reese's commercial). Chocolate and peanut butter were made for each other!
