No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

Just like those famous peanut butter cups! These no bake peanut butter bars take only a few ingredients and a few minutes to make! I can not begin to tell you how much you need to give this recipe a try!

Peanut Butter Bars

I first found this recipe over at Sallysbakingaddiction, and immediately realized that I had all the ingredients on hand and stopped doing laundry to make them. (that was a no brainer!) less than 10 minutes to get these in the fridge in the afternoon and they had a few hours to set up in time for an evening dessert. They were everything you'd imagine. Peanut buttery, chocolaty, Heaven!

These will be in my holiday baking list FOR SURE!



ok, lets' get you started!

  2. I would prefer to use almond butter. Any modification to recipe, or simple substitution?

    1. I have never used almond butter. If the consistency is similar to traditional p.b. then I'd think a simple substitution would work. If almond butter is either more "stiff" or "runny" than traditional pb you may need to adjust the other ingredients but, I'd still lean towards an even substitution first. I bet it'll work just fine! If you do try it, We'd love to hear how it went, what you'd do different!
      Thanks for asking, sounds yummy!
