In the World of Treats, is there any yummier partnership than chocolate + peanut butter?

Considering the fact that my entire family knows to hide their Reese’s PB Cups from me, my answer would be no. No, there is most certainly no better collaboration than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s simply the best combo of flavors ever. Whoever first thought of melding peanut butter and chocolate was a total genius.

Seeing that these Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispy Bars and Fudgy Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies  are always super quick to disappear wherever we serve them, we’re guessing today’s No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are going to outshine the other treats on the dessert table this season.

Luckily, these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are ridiculously easy to make. They can be completely made and cut ahead of time, chilled, and served when you need ’em.

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars need only 5 ingredients and a sweet tooth to create an absolute win-win situation…

Here’s what’s going on with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars:

  • They’re crazy easy: only 5 ingredients and zero bake time
  • They’re loaded with creamy peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate for a touch of dark chocolate bliss
  • They’re sprinkled with a light dusting of flaky sea salt, if you wish, for that sweet-salty goodness
  • They stay fresh for many days in the fridge, and can be frozen for several weeks
  • You can cut ’em small or big, whatever suits your fancy. Plus, they’re easy to cut; no fussy slicing

But whatever, you probably didn’t need the above bullet points to help you decide to go make these chocolate peanut butter bars.

And you don’t have to bake your treats to win the baking contest this season.

Just be sure to save a couple for yourself. Enjoy ✨

  • 1 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • Optional: flaky sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a 8×8 square baking pan, line with foil, ensuring enough excess to create an overhang along the edges for easy removal of entire dessert later on. Lightly grease the lined pan and set aside.

  3. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, frequently stir 4 TB peanut butter with chocolate morsels until just melted. Immediately remove from heat and stir until chocolate mixture is smooth. Spread over the peanut butter leayer as evenly as possible. If desired, sprinkle top with a light dusting of flaky sea salt. Cover and chill until set, several hours.
  4. Remove entire dessert from pan using foil overhang, placing the dessert on a cutting board. Let sit 5-10 minutes or until you can easily slice through. Cut into small squares with a sharp knife (serrated works well.) Place in airtight container and keep chilled until ready to serve. Serve chilled or at moderate room temperature.

Bars can be kept in airtight container in fridge for several days or frozen for several weeks.

    I have tried the peanut butter-chocolate combination a few years ago, when I visited Canada, and fell in love with it. Peanut butter is not common in my home country and that’s why I never had it as a child. Your recipe sounds delicious and close to what I’ve had in Canada, I will definitely try to make it.
