Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Bars

Hello Gorgeous,
I hope you are enjoying your summer! Special trips and hosting friends are both great opportunities to make something delicious to share. Here is a recipe I know you will enjoy. Who doesn’t love anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter?! These are a delicious “Butterfinger” candy bar makeover. If you are allergic to peanuts you can substitute sunflower, pecan, cashew, or almond butter.

Let me know how they turn out… or if you managed to keep them around more then 15 minutes after serving them!
