Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate together? I've definitely been guilty of dipping a spoon in BOTH a jar of Nutella and THEN a jar pf peanut butter. Gulp. No judgement.

Our contributor Jill Hatch is here to share her amazingly delicious recipe for peanut butter bars so you can now make this sweet treat to have at home or for when company shows up. And hopefully, you make them last longer than a day, because I am warning you now, they ARE DEADLY DELICIOUS!

Enjoy!
