Today is Sunday and do you know what that means? #SundaySupper time! About one month ago when I made the Bacon and Dried Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies, the #SundaySupper group teamed up with Katie Workman, author of The Mom 100 Cookbook. Today we are back in the kitchen with Katie! And I made her Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares – a layer of creamy peanut butter goodness topped with a thick, teeth-sinking layer of chocolate.
The purpose of The Mom 100 is to provide fresh and quick recipes for parents to prepare with kids. I’m not a mom, but fresh and quick still applies to me because I work full-time during the week. My rule is dinner must be ready within an hour after getting home. In this case, it’s dessert. I woke up an hour early before work, made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares, put them in the fridge, then went to work (with chocolate on my arm). When you need a last-minute treat, these bars are it. Yes, it takes an hour to chill, but it’s one less thing to worry about when you are running around doing a million things.
I modified the recipe ever so slightly by adding peanuts on top while the chocolate was still hot. I like reemphasizing that these are peanut butter. The chocolate layer was my favorite part, mainly because it’s so thick, it literally cracks like a magic shell when you bite into it. I had plans to take extras into work Monday, but Dad and I kept eating them all weekend…
