Peanut Butter Bars

1 Comment


I whipped these bars up for a work get-together. They were super easy and I had all the ingredients on hand already. This may be a go-to dish for parties when I’m short on time.

Let me give you a little nudge to try these out… Short on time for Valentine’s Day? Don’t have a dessert for your dinner? Not planning on making anything at all? Try these! They are so simple and sure to please. 🙂
