“Reese’s” Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

It’s the holiday season, and no matter where you look, you’re in a society filled with sugar and candy. Why not make your own, and know exactly what ingredients go into what you’re eating? I’ve got the perfect recipe to satisfy your sweet cravings. These Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter bars are essentially homemade Reese’s.

These are grain-free, paleo, and vegan, and no bake!

When you’re shopping for the chocolate chips, just make sure you’re looking for over 50% cacao, and that the ingredients list does NOT say, “contains milk.” When selecting peanut butter, find a brand that has one ingredient – PEANUTS! Many stores grind up pb themselves and sell it.
