Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

Chocolate peanut butter bars are a fun treat to make.

I made these bars the other day by using my Aunt's peanut butter ball recipe. After I cut the recipe in half, I changed a few things and they turned out great.

The only thing I didn't cut in half was the wax, so the chocolate coating was a little hard. When I went to cut them, the chocolate just broke. They still turned out delicious and everyone loved them.

I also melted some red wafers and drizzled it on top. Just to add a little decoration to it. It looked pretty good until I got cared away with trying new things. I tried to use a stencil to make some hearts on the cake with the melted red wafers and it didn't work. I also melted some pink wafers and tried using a stencil and again it didn't turn out like I would have hoped. The picture at the bottom of the page shows the end result, but I had fun trying!

Next time I will stick to using sprinkles with the stencils.
