Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Bars

This has been one of those crazy-busy-drive-a-momma-crazy kind of days, but I did manage to sneak in a few pics of one of our favorite homemade treats. Facebook has been making nuts (if you’d like to see PPP on Facebook you’ll want to check this out), I broke my youngest’s Christmas handprint  plate from school . . .that I literally just had gotten (a few very sweet teachers went out of their way so I’d have a full set of all of my children’s plates – of course I managed to drop it and it smashed all over the garage floor ~ still sniffling over that one), and I’m just feeling a wee bit taken over by those Christmas Crazies all over again.


I did manage to get my Christmas cards ordered, update my driver’s license, and even make a return to Walmart though. That counts for something, right? 😉


Anywhoo, here’s the recipe (after a whole lot of rambling you probably weren’t quite up for ~ sorry folks!) The good news? Even on a bad day I know deep down I’m still crazy blessed, and undoubtedly things will feel better in the morning. (Isn’t that always the case?) If you’ve had one of those crazy-busy-what-and-really-can-I-survive-til-December-25th? kind of days, hugs to you too.

  1. Oh no! That makes me very sad. I would sniffle over that too. But your Peanut Butter Bars look really good and I am eager to try them.
