These bars remind me of a Butterfinger candy bar. They are crunchy, peanut buttery, and chocolaty.
And did I mention that they go great with a cup of coffee? I love serving them on the Villeroy and Boch Mariefleur cup and saucer. It makes them seem like such a special treat.
If you are looking for beautiful Christmas gifts for the foodies in your life then I would highly suggest you take a look at Villeroy and Boch’s website. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong giving one of their beautiful cup and saucers with a pound of coffee, box of tea, and/or homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisp Bars. If you’re considering this, then please add me to your Christmas list!
This Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisps recipe came from Kraft Food & Family Holiday 2006 issue. I like them because there is no baking involved. Here is my slightly adapted version.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Crisps
1/3 c. brown sugar
3 tbsp. corn syrup
2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
2 c. Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. cocktail peanuts, chopped
Line a 13×9 inch pan with foil. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, microwave brown sugar, corn syrup, 2 tbsp. and peanut butter on high for 1 minute and stir. Cook for 1 additional minute, or until melted. Add cereal; mix until cereal is coated. Press into bottom of prepared pan.
In small bowl, microwave chocolate chips and peanut butter on high until melted. Spread over cereal mixture and sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Cut into triangles. Store in refrigerator in airtight container.
Makes about 16 triangle bars.

*Villeroy and Boch sent me this cup and saucer as a product sample. I was not compensated for this post, and my opinion is all mine
