Peanut butter and chocolate – has there ever been a better duo? We think not. The creamy chocolate and the creamy (or crunchy) peanut butter pair so well together, we decided to round up our four favorite chocolatey, peanut buttery desserts so that everyone could indulge in them…you never need an excuse to dig into one of these deliciously rich desserts, so take a look below and try ’em out!
1. Peanut Butter Oreo Icebox Cake
While it might look incredibly rich – which, let’s be real, it is, since it’s stuffed with oreos, peanut butter, peanuts and chocolate sauce – this icebox cake is cool and refreshing and surprisingly light considering how much we packed in it…get the recipe here!
2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Muddy Buddies
Also known as puppy chow, this dessert uses Chex mix as a base for basically any topping you want to mix in. Our favorite method is to use melted peanut butter and chocolate to coat the crunchy crackers, then dust it with a healthy dose of powdered sugar and toss it all together. It’s easy to make and totally addictive – get the recipe here!
3. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
Perhaps the most decadent of this list, these peanut-butter-cheesecake-stuffed chocolate chip bars are to. die. for. Word to the wise: definitely make extra of these…grab the recipe here!
4. Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? (The only correct answer is “yes.”) Now while you could easily go out and buy these at the store, it’s so much better to make them yourself! Get the recipe here and make your own – you’ll love them!
