Cookie Recipe of the Week: No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars - Easy, No-Bake Bar Cookie That’s Ready in 15 Minutes

Image: The Cookie Elf

No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar Cookies combine two great flavors – chocolate chips and peanut butter – in an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G taste that remind you of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

They’re super easy, too, with just 6 ingredients.

And because they’re bar cookies, they’re ready in less than 15 minutes. You means you mix them together, slap on the melted chocolate layer, pop them into the fridge, and pull them out a few minutes later to cut.

Prep time: <15 minutes
Chill time: 15-30 minutes
Makes about 60 bite-sized bars
