Once again, Pastry Chef, Phyllis, agreed to share another luscious recipe - Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares. It’s the perfect melt-in-your-mouth treat for those who love with classic chocolate/peanut butter combination. You will never have to buy another Reeses Peanut Butter Cup again.
This easy NO BAKE dessert recipe will bring you tons of applause. Thankfully, they freeze well. So you can always make a double batch and have them on hand. Disclaimer: Be aware, they ARE addictive. They quickly disappear from our Tea Time table. Try them right now. Send your comments to us on our FaceBook page. We’d love to see pictures of YOUR chocolate peanut butter squares (or at least your chocolatey fingers). Special shout out to Laura T from MA… she LOVES these!
