Chocolate & Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

Ok seriously, who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter! These bars are so simple to make and have only 5 ingredients! The only thing that takes time is letting it set in the fridge. I am writing this as Valentines Day is coming up and this could be the perfect indulgent treat for that special someone ❤ You could even cut the squares out with a heart shaped cookie cutter!

Warning…you won’t be able to eat just one bite 😉

Peanut Butter-Dipped Cookies-and-Cream Cake

This cake is decadent! The Peanut Butter Frosting is divine! It also is fairly time consuming but what 3 layered cake isn’t? I made it for my husband’s 28th birthday. Safe to say he gave this recipe a 10/10. It makes so much! So be sure to invite some friends over to share!

I made this recipe from a cookbook so unfortunately I can’t share the ingredients or how to make it but I can tell you where to buy the book. I highly recommend it! It is the Half Baked Harvest Cookbook. You can purchase it on Amazon and I am cooking my way through it and loving it so far!

Time: 3 hours plus cooking time
