Make this excellent treat for Halloween today! If you are fan of peanut butter and chocolate then you and your little goblins will surely love my No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.
10 Tablespoons Softened Butter
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Unbleached Flour
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
8 Ounces Coarsely Chopped Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Line an 8inch square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a large size bowl beat together the peanut butter, butter, kosher salt, flour and powdered sugar. Beat for 4 minutes while stopping to scrape down the sides occasionally. Spread the mixture into the baking pan and press down to spread evenly as well as compacting it. In a double boiler melt the chocolate. If you don’t have a double boiler then bring a pot of water to a simmer and place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl. Put the bowl over the pot of simmering water and cook until the chocolate is completely melted. Pour the chocolate into the pan over the peanut butter mixture and spread evenly. Let cool to room temperature and then put into the fridge for 2 hours. Remove from the fridge and cut into bars. Makes 18 bars.
