Peanut Butter Squares

This little recipe is based on the much loved Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Its quick and easy to put altogether and the best part, its a no bake recipe, so all you have to do is pop it in the fridge for an hour or so, and then you have your little squares ready to. 

As summer is around the conner a lot of people are after their summer bod, so what I say with treats, is make you have some friends over to help, as these are ridiculously moreish.  These are also great treats for any tea party or even picnics. 

La Recette 

Unsalted Butter  100g 
Peanut Butter (I used crunchy) 150g 
Caster Sugar   1 Tablespoon
Digestive Crumbs   25 biscuits
Dark Chocolate   500g

Start the with the crumbs, if you need to make the crumbs, is very simple.  Put the biscuits in to a carrier bag that has no holes, release the air and tie the bag closed with a knot. Next get a rolling pin and roll over the biscuits, and before your every eyes you will have crumbs.

Next mix in the butter, peanut butter and sugar. Keep mixing till everything is incorporated well, then but in your mould.  Make sure that it is all compressed well together.

Melt the dark chocolate. I used dark, but you can use what you like, but as the peanut butter is quite sweet the dark chocolate balances out the sweet element.  Pour the melted chocolate all over the mixture, pop in to the fridge for an hour, et Volia. Your very own Peanut Squares.

Bon App├ętit
