No Bake Cookies
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe is an easy-to-make treat that tastes like Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cups. Probably the easiest dessert I have ever made. They only take 5 minutes to throw together.
A great thing about No-bake desserts is that they are a great summer dessert. Since you do not have to use your oven, you will not heat your house up. Next time you are having company or need a sweet treat, whip up these delicious bars. They are great for a barbecue, a picnic, or that special treat for a family dinner. Give these bars a try and you will be hooked too. Children love them! This is the cookie recipe you absolutely need in your Christmas cookie repertoire.
