- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (the creamier, the better!)
- 1 cup almond flour (Note: If you prefer, you can substitute with 3/4 cup gluten-free flour. However, keep in mind that almond flour is not a 1:1 substitute, as it absorbs more liquid, so adjust accordingly.)
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (Alternatively, you can use honey if you prefer its distinct flavor.)
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips (Feel free to use milk chocolate chips if that's your preference)
- 1/8 cup a|dash Zen Cacao
How to Make These Reese’s Bars:
Prepare the Pan: Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and set it aside. This will make it easy to lift the bars out later.
Create the Peanut Butter Base: In a large bowl, mix together the creamy peanut butter, almond flour, and maple syrup until fully combined. Transfer this mixture to the prepared baking dish and press it down firmly, using clean hands or a spatula to form it to the dish. Put it in the fridge while you start to melt the chocolate.
Melt the Chocolate: Use a double boiler to melt the dark chocolate chips. Once melted, mix in the peanut butter and a|dash Zen Cacao until smooth. This heavenly blend will be the decadent topping for your bars.
Spread the Chocolate Mixture: Pour the mushroom chocolate mixture on top of the peanut butter base and spread it evenly to cover the entire surface.
Chill and Set: Place the baking dish in the fridge to set for 1-2 hours. This allows the bars to firm up, creating that perfect, satisfying texture.
Slice and Savor: Once the bars have set, use a sharp knife to slice them into your desired size. Whether you go for bite-sized squares or generous bars, the choice is yours. Indulge and enjoy the symphony of flavors!
These Copycat Peanut Butter Cup Bars are a delightful treat that combines the best of both worlds – creamy peanut butter and rich chocolate. Share them with friends, family, or savor them all to yourself.
