These Peanut Butter Bars are the perfect party dessert. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them to save time the day of the party. The decadent filling and rich, chocolate icing make this desert look and taste like it took hours to make, but it is really a super quick and easy recipe that anyone can make! These bars are the closest thing to a peanut butter cup at I have ever tasted and they are sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next get together.
