Peanut butter and chocolate are a classic combination. In these No-Bake Peanut Butter Corn Flake Bars, you get the peanut buttery-chocolately taste you love without having to heat up the house.
I love no-bake recipes, especially when the weather starts warming up! The last thing I want to do on a nice day is spend all day in the kitchen. These bars only take a few minutes to make and are a delicious treat!
Not everyone is a fan of crunchy peanut butter. If this is you, simply swap it for a creamy peanut butter.
We like the crunchy peanut butter because of the added texture, but feel free to use whatever peanut butter you have handy.
Like Rice Krispy Treats, getting these into a greased pan without making a sticky mess can be tricky.
I’ve found that greasing my hands with butter is a great way to press them into the pan without them sticking to me.
Make these no-bake bars a little more exciting by adding additional toppings. After spreading the chocolate on top, and before it hardens, sprinkle some of these on top:
- сhорреd реаnutѕ
- mіnі M&Mѕ
- реаnut buttеr сhірѕ
- сhорреd рrеtzеlѕ
