Well, hopefully that’s not the only thing we’re known for.
But anyway, these bars are chocolatey and super-easy to make. They take under five minutes to prepare.
When I first made these bars, everyone enjoyed them.
And therefore I was doomed to a life of making homemade chocolate peanut butter bars.
I’ve told them that I can teach them how to make these bars. In fact, that’s part of the reason I’m writing a recipe. So I can put it on the refrigerator and tell people to make their own food. Yet for some reason they won’t be taught. Probably because it’s easier to have me make them.
But you know, come to think of it, being doomed to a life of making chocolatey goodness (and eating it) isn’t the worst that could happen.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy these as much as my family did.
