Peanutbutter Chocolate Kit Kat Bars - Weekday Wednesday!

It's Weekday Wednesday once again, and I have to tell you, I've been stressed. Thankfully, I have only three days to go until I begin a one week vacation, but the three days are jam packed!

And it never fails, when life gets hectic like this, I start to crave something sweet. So I went into my recipe files last night to see what was what.

I keep lists of things I want to try and I've had this one kicking around for awhile for Peanut butter Chocolate Kit Kat Bars and am I ever glad I tried it. Talk about a delicious quick and easy recipe. Not only do mu husband and I love this one. It got a big thumbs up from a group of high school students I taste tested it on yesterday.
