The marriage of chocolate and peanut butter is one of the all-time best dessert combinations. This recipe as well as these Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars [5] totally prove that!

This toffee is so good –  it’s melt in your mouth wonderful. My stepson is a wiz at video. You see the video at the top of this post? Well, his motivation in helping produce it was enjoying a full tray of this stuff. How cool is that!

If you’re looking for easy, this recipe is your thing. The only issue is you have to wait for it to cool and solidify once it’s done. That part is hard. Really hard once you’ve smelled the buttery toffee! 🙂  Did I mention also hard to put down? It is a bit like candy crack!

Then, place in a 400 degree oven for 5-6 minutes. Once out of the oven,  spread the melted peanut butter over the top. Then, top the peanut butter with chocolate chips and let sit for 5 minutes. Spread the chocolate morsels around in a thick layer. Oh, yes, a thick layer of chocolate!
