Baking is overrated some days.
Some days you need a chocolate fix without all the mixing and preheating.
Some days you need to melt some chocolate, top it with cereal and call it a day.
Some days turns out to be today.
This is essentially a bark, but not a bark, because it’s a little thicker…and also because I didn’t want to call it bark.
And since I invented it, I have that ability.
In this candy bar (bark) we have chocolate, peanuts, mini peanut butter cups AND Reese’s Puffs cereal. It’s a chocolate and peanut butter party.
And again, you don’t even have to bake it. I’m winning at desserts today.
So let’s get these Homemade Peanut Butter Cup Candy Bars (Bark) show on the road.
First, chop up some honey roasted peanuts…
Then melt some chocolate. About 3 cups. I used Hershey’s Baking Melts.
They melt pretty much the same way that a chocolate chip would, just to let you know, they aren’t like those candy baking melts.
Mix in your chopped nuts…
Then get your mini peanut butter cups ready…
And stir them in. They might melt a touch, but that’s ok!
And then measure out your cereal…about 2 cups.
