Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Baking has never really been “my thing” — that was true at least until quarantine started. I’ve always avoided baking because I’m not much of a recipe follower (who, me?!) and also because I can’t control myself around baked goods. But here we are… some 70 days into our isolation-in-place order and I am all about homemade treats. These chocolate peanut butter bars were inspired by my mother-in-law’s recipe. Each year we make about 30 different cookie recipes for Christmas and her chocolate peanut butter bars are always my favorite. They’re completely addicting and I honestly apologize for this guilty pleasure. We all deserve a little indulgence, though! Am I right?!
