I tried out this recipe because I LOVE peanut butter and it didn't require a lot of ingredients. This recipe was an instant hit. I have made them twice this week so far and with the holiday coming up I will probably make it many more times. I recommend you make double batches they go pretty quick even when cut into smaller squares. :)

I brought this into my husband's office after seeing the recipe on the back of the milk chocolate morsels. It was sweet and delicious- I may use crunchy peanut butter next time to give it some texture. I will definitely make this again!!
