Spring Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars are a family favorite! We’ve loved this recipe for at least a decade- we hope you’ll love it too!
I crushed up Cadbury Mini Eggs to garnish our bars but if you don’t happen to have them on hand just chop up part of a chocolate bar or chocolate sprinkles would work too.
I can hardly believe it’s Easter weekend… it seems really early this year! I hope that you and your families all enjoy wonderful food and fun times together 🙂
