Recipe: Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

Hey everyone! I finally had a moment to do some more cooking and experimentation and have recipes to share with y’all 😀 So excited to tell you about these 5 ingredient gluten-free peanut butter chocolate bars! I’ll be honest with you, this recipe said it would take only 15 minutes but it ended up taking me over an hour…but I blame myself and I’ll tell you why later haha… O:-)

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter
  • 1 3/4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
  • 10 tablespoons of butter (basically a stick and 1/4 of butter)
    **For future reference, most sticks of butter have measurements of teaspoons and tablespoon increments–I derped and completely missed that LOL so it took me a while to get the right amount of butter!
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips

Steps:

  1. Line your pan with aluminum foil (preferably a square pan since the proportions in this recipe won’t fill a 13-inch rectangular pan).
  2. Mix together your peanut butter, powdered sugar, brown sugar, and 5 tbsp of butter realllly well! I wanted to see how difficult it would be to mix sans mixer, so I used a fork, a spoon, and a rice spatula and it took me a good while to get it to the consistency needed lolol

  3. When you’re done making your PB mix, press it down onto your aluminum pan in an even layer.13509537_3365536941183_568955831_o
  4. Heat up your chocolate chips and the other 5 tbsp of butter for about 30 seconds in the microwave and mix well–my mix seemed off, so I added extra chocolate chips til it was nice and creamy!13523695_3365537021185_1316944741_o
  5. Pour the chocolate evenly on top of the PB layer and refrigerate overnight.

    So excited to see what the final result will look like! 

    6. I recommend wrapping it in saran wrap or aluminum foil overnight and then cutting them into bite-sized pieces the next day so the PB can harden and be nice and chewy.

Unfortunately, these peanut butter chocolate bars may not have the crunch you get from eating a Reese’s cup, but I’ve gotten feedback from numerous food critics (aka my sister and my coworkers) that it tastes JUST like it, if not better! Enjoy and don’t eat too much, it’s a TON of sugar haha 🙂
