No Bake Peanut Butter Bars with White Chocolate

The easiest and yummiest no-bake peanut butter bars with white chocolate!

It’s no big secret around here that peanut butter would rate as one of my favourite things ever. I love nothing more than a peanut butter and jam sandwich, or peanut butter, sliced banana and cinnamon on toast. Oh and my peanut butter brownie bliss balls are my favourite guilt-free treat. But of course, my very favourite way to eat peanut butter is with chocolate!!!

These no bake peanut butter bars with white chocolate are just like a sugary sweet little treat made in heaven. And they’re completely no-bake!!! That’s right – you don’t even need to turn the oven on to make these bars. How good is that!?

To make my peanut butter slice, all you need to do is crush up some plain sweet biscuits into really fine crumbs. Melt some butter and peanut butter together (yep, it’s all about the good stuff!), then add in a bit of icing sugar and the crushed biscuits. Mix everything together until it’s deliciously combined, pop it into a slice tin and then you get to start on the good stuff! Ooh yeah – the white chocolate and peanut butter frosting is THE BEST!

I like to leave my slices for at least a few hours before cutting them as it makes it SO much easier to get neat slices. If you’re a neat freak like me and want perfectly cut slices, check out my tips here. I’d also recommend allowing the slice to come up to room temperature before slicing it, so that your chocolate doesn’t crack. But don’t worry if it does – it will still taste AMAZING!!

If you’re a fan of chocolate and peanut butter together then you really, really have to try this slice (and these cookies for that matter!). It will seriously blow your mind! The only downside is that it mysteriously seems to disappear very quickly. Funny how that happens, right!?

    These look delicious however they do contain a lot of sugar, does this slice really need that much sugar especially as its base is a sweet biscuit

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi there, this is a sweet slice. You could try reducing the amount of sugar, however, I have found that this amount works best for the texture and taste 🙂
