This recipe is easy to make, no-bake and basically ready in 10 minutes. If you love peanut butter and chocolate, then you have to try these delicious peanut butter bars.
They are great pretty sweet, so they would go perfectly with a cup of coffee, or you can pack them for a day at the park. They are a great after dinner dessert, that you can make a day or two ahead, believe me, they will taste as good as if just made.
The best of all is that you can store them in the fridge up to 2 weeks, although I am sure they will be eaten pretty much the day you make them.
I would recommend to use dark chocolate for this recipe. The base is very sweet, so dark chocolate balances the sweetness perfectly. I used chocolate with 60% cocoa.

In another bowl add cracker crumbs or biscuits and sugar, pour peanut butter mixture and stir to combine or until it resembles moist sand.

Pour the biscuit mixture and even out with a spoon by pressing it tightly to the sides and bottom of the tray.
