I need a chocolate in my dessert to feel satisfied. So I am always on board to add a dash of chocolate chips here or a sprinkle of chocolate sprinkles there. I tend to pick my desserts based on their chocolatey-factor, and these definitely deliver! These Peanut Butter S’mores Bars have an evenly distributed layer of chocolate chips that are complemented by the marshmallow and peanut butter. This dessert includes two classic combinations, chocolate & peanut butter, and chocolate & marshmallow. How could this get any better?
Well, what if I told you that this is a freezable recipe! To freeze the bars, cool them completely but do not cut them into individual servings. Wrap the portion you want to freeze tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap in tin foil again. The bars will last in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to serve them again, thaw at room temperature before cutting into individual servings. This will reduce waste and help you portion size your dessert.
This recipe can also be made gluten-free if you substitute the regular all-purpose flour for gluten-free all-purpose flour.
