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!
How To Make Peanut Butter Squares
- 50 g dark muscovado sugar
- 200 g icing sugar
- 50 g soft butter
- 200 g peanut butter
- 200 g milk chocolate
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
A 23cm square lined brownie tin
- Thoroughly mix the sugars, soft butter and peanut butter together until smooth. You can even whizz it all up in the food processor to make it super speedy.
- Press the sandy mixture into the brownie tin and flatten the surface.
- Melt together the chocolate and tablespoon of butter and spread over the base.
- Chill in the fridge until hard and then cut into bite sized squares.
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.
