Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

 Thanks to a recommendation from one of my Instagram followers, we had a really fun lunch last weekend at The Cheese Shop in Williamsburg. Seriously, it’s called The Cheese Shop. Give me all the cheese! So many kinds. And then there were homemade jellies and sauces and spreads and aiolis and pickled tasty things from floor to ceiling along every single wall. I almost shed a tear for pure joy.

That same Instagram follower suggested we hop next door to Wythe’s Candy Shop and I’ve gotta say THANK YOU to her because I stuffed my face with some of the best fudge I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. S’mores and peanut butter-chocolate were the flavors of the day and they were absolutely perfect. The peanut butter one was my favorite, so creamy, so peanut buttery, so rich.

These peanut butter bars are rich too but wayyy easier to make than even the simplest fudge recipe. These are no-bake and come together in less than 20 minutes. The best part is the chocolate on top. The secret is that it isn’t just chocolate, it’s chocolate and peanut butter all swirled together into one splendid topping you can’t get enough of. Don’t you just want to sink your teeth into these bars?? Try not to eat them all in one sitting!

Looks really good.. would love to try them SOON . 🙂

Do you use quick or old fashioned oats for these bars?

    Old fashioned 🙂

As a huge peanut butter and chocolate fan, these bars sound INCREDIBLE, and I cannot wait to give them a shot! Nothing like an easy recipe like this one to throw together on a random weekday just because!

Just made these & they are chilling in the fridge as I comment! So quick, easy & amazing looking!

Has anyone tried to make these with no or reduced sugar? Any luck? I would also far rather use crunchy, natural peanutbutter. Let me know, oh experimental ones…!
