Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

How Bad Could It Be Valentine’s Dessert

“How bad could it be” to mix the topping ingredients in this recipe into the filling and add too many chocolate chips to the second topping attempt?  That’s what I did as I was multi-tasking heim-made designing, emails, and phone calls!  The answer is that it only became more decadent and delectable!!!  You can’t go wrong with chocolate, peanut butter, cream, and Oreos, can you?  Enjoy your treat however you choose to prepare it!
