No-Bake Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Happy Valentines!

It's weekend and it's hearts day so I made something sweet for the sweet ones (my family) on the sweetest time of the year - my personal version of no-bake Crunchy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars!

It was raining and quite gloomy when I woke up this morning. There seems to be no hope for a ray of sunshine so I thought I would just let the day end as if it's just an ordinary one. I rose from bed late and didn't even bother to do anything other than reading posts on Facebook. It was only after lunch when I actually decided to cook and since it's already late, it has to be something simple.

This five-ingredient recipe is indeed very easy to do. It even requires no baking.

Ingredients include 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup peanut butter, whole nuts, 1 cup crushed grahams and 1 cup semi-sweet dark chocolate melt. Combine all first four ingredients together. Lay the mixture flat and evenly on a foil-covered square pan and chill for for 20 minutes. Then, pour down and evenly spread chocolate melt on top and let the pan sit back to the fridge for another two hours. Finally, get the whole thing off the pan, cut into bars, serve and enjoy.

Cookie crumbs can also be used instead of crushed grahams. Again this is another DIY recipe so you can always explore and make it your own. Since most of my target customers at home are kids, I topped some of the bars with vermicelli - making it colorful and attractive.
