Peanut Butter Squares

If you love the peanut butter/chocolate combination, this simple, no-bake dessert is for you! It’s calling my name, too.

It has a thick layer of sweet peanut butter that almost melts in your mouth. A thin layer of milk chocolate finishes off adding an extra bit of indulgence. These squares are easy to make and are just begging to be shared with your family and friends.

With the holidays coming up, I’m always looking for new recipes to try. This recipe has been floating around for a while and I can easily see why it’s so popular. I’m a big fan of vintage desserts.

Make a bunch and freeze some so you can always have a sweet treat on hand for company.

If you prefer a thinner square, use a 9×13 baking pan. I like mine thick so I used a smaller, square pan.

Whatever pan you use, remember to use parchment paper. It will save you the headache of trying to cut the squares from the pan! Without it, I find I ruin too many squares when I’m trying to cut!
