No Cook Peanut Butter Squares

These morish Peanut Butter Squares are so, so good, dangerously good! They are a definite “Oh I’ll just have one more,” kind of treat and before you know it you’ve scoffed the lot and are raiding the cupboards for supplies to make more.

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s no cook (other than melting some chocolate) so it’s a fantastic recipe for kids. We love it for Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day and birthdays because the children can make homemade edible treats for loved ones so easily.

If you like a peanut and chocolate combination then you’ll adore these. They are wonderfully tasty and no doubt seriously calorie laden too but I go with the best not dwell, line of thought.  Yummy!

I really love this recipe, it’s so quick and easy and gives me a whole plate of deliciousness very similar to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

      Make double! Eat the first lot, just to make sure the recipe works of course, and then make a second lot to share. Yay for peanuts and chocolate! Hope they go well for you. x
