Two stacked up peanut butter bars with chocolate icing.

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

The Reese's Puffs amps up the peanut butter flavor and gives the bars an extra burst of chocolate sweetness. The texture is spot on. You will not be able to stop at just one of these bars. Proceed with caution. But do proceed, because you really need these in your life!
