One of my very favorite times to eat and cook during any given month has got to be the meal/dessert that I chose for The Secret Recipe Club. This is that recipe. This month I chose to make Peanut Butter Cup Bars from the lovely, lovely blog Mele Cotte. It was a great decision. Let me tell you these babies are rich! Just how I like my dessert. The choosing process as usual was quite a lot of fun after a couple of hours reading blog posts I had it narrowed down to about 17 possible choices. How to choose. then one day I just up and decided on the peanut butter bars, walked into the kitchen and got down to business. They were enjoyed by all. Yes I shared. I am sure I will be back to Mele Cotte to try all her other fabulous recipes, head on over and check them out!
