Peanut ButterIf you haven't already seen then you should know that I have a major peanut butter addiction. I think I even have peanut butter flowing through my veins
I especially love Reese's and the fact we can now get it freely over here in the UK!

I have seen many recipes bouncing around recently for "No Bake Peanut Butter Bars" so I decided to give it a go and make some, but I enhanced the recipe somewhat and put my own spin on it by using Reese's peanut butter and peanut butter cups

This recipe is super simple and doesn't require many ingredients. I also made up some of the quantities in regards to peanut butter added in so feel free to change the recipe. I know I changed the original recipe I used quite drastically

List of ingredients are:

  • 200g digestive biscuits (I ended up using more because my pan was larger than I thought)
  • 70g unsalted butter
  • Reese's peanut butter
  • 200g dark chocolate (or any chocolate you like really)
  • Optional// You could even stick some Peanut Hottie into the mix if you like! ;)

No Bake peanut butterSo, now you have the ingredients it is time to make these wonderful creations of the peanut butter Gods!

  1. Either place the digestives into a blender and blend until a crumb is formed, or bash them in a bowl with a rolling pin like I did to make your fine crumb
  2. Melt the unsalted butter
  3. Add the melted butter and 120g of Reese's peanut butter to the crumb mixture and mix together until well combined
  4. Lightly grease a pan/tray. Ideally 8x8 inches big. My glass pan ended up being too big!
  5. Spread the peanut butter base mixture into the pan and pat down with a spoon to create a smooth and even surface
  6. Melt the chocolate and 2 tbsp of peanut butter over a bain marie on a low heat. I ended up using the microwave so you can do that too. Just make sure not to burn the ingredients! I microwaved them for 10 second bursts at a time, taking it out after each burst to stir it well
  7. Once melted and smooth, spread the melted chocolate all over your biscuit base
  8. I then placed Reese's peanut butter cups on top
  9. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours

What do you think? Looks so good right?! Once it has been refrigerated for at least 2 hours you can then cut the whole thing up to make your bars or bite sized chunks. Before cutting I would recommend letting it sit for a few minutes as the whole mixture ends up being quite solid straight out of the fridge

Do you enjoy peanut butter? Will you be making some of these?
