So, I have been craving all things peanut butter and chocolate lately. It started last week with some no bake chocolate-peanut butter-oat-coconut thingies that, by the way I convinced myself were a healthy breakfast because they had oats in them.
Well, those are no longer a problem. Ahem
But the craving still lingers.
One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle from Brown Eyed Baker had posted this recipe and I had to give it a shot. It had all the makings of a favorite recipe.
Sweet and simple. Who knew laziness is something that goes hand and hand with someone who is constantly craving chocolate and peanut butter?
If you are looking for a great twist on a classic and also something that will stop the arguing in your head. You know the argument. “You got chocolate in my peanut butter!” “You got peanut butter in my chocolate!” Whip up a batch of these.
