No Bake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars


I found this recipe and very much liked the no-bake part of it…so I decided to make it for the family, since peanut butter and chocolate are two of the kids’ favorite things. It went over very well with the whole family. It is very easy to make, we even took them with us on a road trip for a snack.
