Hello loves! How are you doing today?
So, if you follow me on Instagram, this won’t come as a surprise for you. This has been my most requested blogpost so far. A while back, I made these incredible looking Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars which took everyone by surprise. They look like something out of a fancy dessert place and taste pretty amazing, if I say so myself. But you know the best part? They. Are. So. Easy. To. Make. Like, way too easy!
Just a little disclaimer before I start, though. I absolutely cannot take credit for these mouth-watering little gems. I came across this video by Home Cooking Adventure on YouTube and I’m so happy that I did. However, I must warn you, these are really heavy. Like super rich.
If you wish to see her video, I’ll leave a link down below and you can make the bars with her! Now enough of me rambling, let’s get on to the recipe.
200g (7oz) Digestive biscuits (Graham Crackers)
120g (1/2 cup) crunchy or creamy Peanut Butter
70g (1/3 cup) unsalted butter, melted
200g (7oz) Bittersweet chocolate – 55% to 70% cocoa
60g (4 tbsp) creamy peanut butter, divided in half
8×8 inch square pan
- Using a food processor, blend the biscuits until crumbs form. You need really fine crumbs, not chunky at all but not powdered either. Add melted butter and peanut butter and blend until mixture starts to hold together.
- Slightly grease your pan and line with parchment paper. Leave some edges long enough to ease lifting once set.
- Spread the base mixture evenly and lay flat and smooth with the back of a spoon.
- melt chocolate and 2 tbsp (30g) of peanut butter together to form a smooth mixture. In another saucepan over low heat, melt the remaining 2 tbsp (30g) of peanut butter until smooth.
- Spread the chocolate mixture evenly over the base layer. Now here’s the fun part! Add spoonful’s of melted peanut butter over the top and use the long end of a spoon or a knife to create swirls on the surface. Let your creative juices flow!
- Sadly, you can’t have these as is. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to set. Before cutting into squares, allow to reach room temperature otherwise the bars can crack while cutting. Trust me, I’ve been there! Patience is key.
- Take amazing pictures because you and I both know they look too damn fab! Now go on, have a bite (or five) and enjoy!
I hope you guys have fun recreating this too good of a recipe and make sure to tag me in your photos if you do so. I would love to see how they turn out!

P.S. This was my first ever recipe blogpost. I was thinking of having food and recipes as a regular category on my blog. Like not weekly, but whenever I have a great recipe worth sharing. Let me know what you think of this idea in the comments below as I would be happy to do so if you guys would like to read them!
Have fun and take care.
