I made these No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars to take to a friend’s get together. I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate and these also had an added bonus: puffed rice. Don’t you just love how crispy puffed rice is? Every time I eat it, I get transported back to my childhood, when I would love to eat puffed rice even plain and feel it bubble in my mouth! These bars are amazingly good and the moment I saw them on Chocolate Moosey, I knew I had to make them. My kids, especially my youngest one, liked them so much that she made me promise to make them again! Enjoy!
