It’s no secret that I’ve got a sweet tooth. And sometimes that sweet tooth involves desserts that the hubs isn’t a fan of (i.e. anything involving peanut butter). Most of the time, I end up not making those types of desserts because I don’t want to get stuck eating the whole thing and it’s not worth the time involved if I’m the only one enjoying it. This dessert, however, is the perfect solution to those times in life when you want something sweet, chocolatey, & peanut-buttery but you a) don’t want to spend 5 hours in the kitchen making it and b) you only want a small amount, not 50 servings to feed the masses. This is the perfect go-to dessert for any sweet tooth cravings.
And did I mention it’s NO-BAKE?!
