No Bake Peanutbutter Chocolate Bars

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Are you like me, enjoying time in the kitchen this time of year?

We're having a lovely holiday in my little corner of the world and this year marks a special occasion as my *now* adult son (where does the time go?) is home for the holidays and is going to help me cook Christmas dinner!

I'm certain moms far and wide get why this is such a big deal for me as it's only three years since the dreaded teenage years and I'm still in withdrawal.

I was also thrilled to learn that one of his friends from the good old days still loves my baking and was hoping I'd put together a tin of goodies for him with his favourite Kitchen Witch concoction: No Bake Cornflake Bars.



These are so amazingly delicious - almost like a Crispy Crunch bar only better!

Please enjoy the step by step  video... recipe to follow!
