 FAQs about this Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

Do you bake this recipe?

Yes. I know there are no-bake traybake recipes out there, like my Malteser Rocky Road recipe, but this one involves popping in the oven for about 15-20 minutes.

How do you make Peanut Butter Bars?

Start with the peanut butter and sugar, and cream together slowly, either by hand or in a processor. Then mix in the egg and the rest of the ingredients until you have a firm dough. Press the mixture into a greased traybake tin and put in the oven. To make the topping, melt the milk chocolate and white chocolate in different bowls, then top the bars with the milk chocolate and drizzle over the white chocolate for the full effect. Allow to cool and cut into pieces.

  • Spread the milk chocolate over the traybake, then drizzle the white chocolate on top.
  • Allow to set and then cut into pieces using a sharp knife and remove from the tin.

  1. You’ve left me rather curious about what Paw Patrol actually is lol. These look absolutely delicious; I’ll definitely have to give these a go sometime. Yes, I’ve had a rainy baking today in the middle of slimming world fresh starts but we all need a real treat now and then and a cuppa to wash it down 🙂 x

  2. Oh my gosh they look amazing ! I would love to be able to make something like this xx

  3. My little ones start school this September too. I’m so excited! Anything peanut butter gets a huge thumbs up here, I’ll definitely be giving these a go x

  4. You are quite possibly a hero to say yes to these in the middle of all this January dieting. I’m all for it (and these!) Many of the people in my lab and office are trying to be good at the moment so I’ve not brought in any goodies since before Christmas. I can’t last much longer though.

    P.S. I’m not included in the group of people being good by the way!
