No Bake Peanut Butter Bars

In the summertime, I try to reduce the amount of baking because of the summer heat. The last thing is to have the temperature of my house to match the temperature outside. So, I've been on a pursuit this summer to find some non-oven recipes greatness. Thanks to Pinterest, I found this recipe: no bake peanut butter bars. Not only does this recipe requires no baking, it is super simple to make. I didn't realize that these bars taste like the inside of a peanut butter cup until I shared the end product with some friends. In my opinion, the bars tasted better cold because it has more texture. If the bars are left at room temperature, it gets mushy. There is nothing wrong with a messy, gooey peanut butter bar but just make sure you have lots of napkins or a fork! I learned the hard way!
