Peanut Butter Squares with Chocolate

peanut butter squares

These chocolate peanut butter squares taste very much like the real brand name Peanut Butter Cups.

It is one of the easiest chocolate desserts you can ever imagine. No need to even turn on the oven!

Kids and adults alike will just love these squares. It is also one of my favorite Christmas deserts.

They are a welcome addition to a plate of mixed cookies, tarts and other treats any time of year.
