Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares


I love watching the Food Channel when I get a chance and last week was such a moment. Lorraine Pascale was on TV and she was demonstrating a peanut butter recipe. It looked delicious and it was a simple no bake recipe. I knew that I had to try it and I'm so glad I did as it tastes amazing. If you love peanut butter and chocolate as much as me then you will definitely love this recipe. I know it's not the healthiest thing to eat in January but it could be worse! I love the addition of digestive biscuits to the peanut butter which gives it a really nice texture. 

These are perfect for lunch boxes or for an after dinner treat. The plus side is you can slice them into tiny little squares so you don't feel as guilty. The trick is not to eat more than one but they really are quite more-ish - you have been warned! I'm sending this to Tea Time Treats hosted by Janie from The Hedgecombers and Karen from Lavender and Lovage. The theme this month is packed lunches.

  5. Ah Ros, it just wouldn't be right if you went too long without a peanut butter chocolate fix. I'm not sure just one teeny bit would be enough for me. Having not eaten much over Christmas, I seem to be going overboard in January.
