Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars - What the Fork

These simple, no-bake gluten free chocolate peanut butter bars taste like peanut butter cups and are insanely easy to make. Can be made dairy free.

This is one of my husband’s favorite things that I’ve ever made. I always ask him to rate my recipes on a scale of 1-10. For him, desserts and savory dishes have a different rating system. I haven’t cracked the savory scale yet, as I’m not 100% sure what it takes to get that perfect 10.

He can be picky, although he doesn’t actually think he is. But he’s definitely great for critiquing because he has no problem giving a recipe a 6, which pisses me off. The effort I put into something is worth more than a 6! But honesty is the best policy (gag me) so it does actually help me figure out how to tweak a recipe to make it gold.

Recipes that never need tweaking? Desserts with chocolate and peanut butter. The dessert scale is a scale of itself. For Adam, a recipe can ONLY start at a 10 if it has both chocolate and peanut butter. So if I make a dessert like my strawberry shortcake or blueberry crumb bars, they start out at an 8. You guys, I’m not even joking. I’m dead serious.

If there’s chocolate, it starts at a 9. If there’s peanut butter, it starts at a 9. If there’s BOTH chocolate AND peanut butter, then it has a start value of 10. Asking him to rate a recipe is like asking him to judge gymnastics.

Wanna know what these gluten free chocolate peanut butter bars got? A 12. TWELVE. Usually, a recipe starts at a 10 (or 8…) and only loses points (too dry, too crumbly, too “I just don’t feel like eating this so I’ll just give it a 7”, etc.). People, this recipe went up in points it was that good. So run, don’t walk, to the kitchen and whip yourself up a batch of these ASAP! Enjoy!

PS my mom used to call these E.T. Bars when she made them for us as kids. We don’t know why.
