About this recipe: This is a delectable treat - a peanut butter and digestive biscuit base is covered in a layer of chocolate. A nice no-bake recipe to make with the kids. The hardest part is waiting to tuck in until the squares are chilled!
If your peanut butter is already sweetened, you may wish to reduce the amount of icing sugar.
Fab!! I used 100g less sugar and added 4 extra digestive biscuits instead, to keep the base solid. I also substituted 100g plain chocolate for milk, to give a deeper chocolatey flavour. I melted the remainder of the pack of butter (25g) into the chocolate, to help soften it a tiny bit. Minor changes though. Lovely recipe - 12 Mar 2013
Having made this about 10 times now, here are a few tips to make it even easier to make. 1) soften your peanut butter in the microwave either with the butter or separately, makes it a lot easier to mix!! 2) grease and line your tin with baking parchment/grease-proof paper, so much easier to lift it out when it is set. 3) Use a metal spoon dipped in boiling water to level the base out in your tin. Lastly, make about 6 batches at once, coz it's so delicious it goes very quickly - 07 Mar 2013
Such a delicious recipe. I didn't have any peanut butter so scattered cut in half peanuts over the base before putting the chocolate on top and they still tasted amazing. - 16 Jul 2012
