|No Bake Peanut Butter Crack Bars|
There is nothing better than peanut butter and chocolate, and best of all, this is no bake!
|No baking required|
There’s many versions of this all over the ‘net, but none of them have this nice crispy crackly topping. Just like eating a Nestle’s Crunch Bar!!! But you can leave out the crisp rice cereal if you prefer. To me it just adds a little interesting point to something already indescribably delicious.
Great snack for summer (hey, no oven!!!) or any time!
