No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars (Reeses Bars)

"This has to be the easiest Reese's-type bar around. I always have these ingredients in my pantry so they don't require any planning ahead. And best of all they don't require baking. Especially a great treat on hot summer days when you want something sweet but don't want to heat up the house. I've also given these as holiday gifts and friends always ask for the recipe. They also make a big pan (jelly roll size) so they are great for pot lucks as well."

Although the kind of cooking I was raised on and most enjoy would best be described as down-home, Southern comfort food, that is not my history in the the least. My mother came from Wyoming rather than the deep south, but she is a wonderful cook and an expert at comfort food.? We always had someone extra at our dinner table as a kid, so I learned how to cook for a crowd.? My husband and two kids tease me about cooking for the 5th regiment, but they all seem to enjoy it. Although I love to cook, I also love to perform in and teach Theatre. That means there are many times when my two passions don't allow enough time for one another.? It's rather difficult to be in the classroom all day teaching theatre, have rehearsals after school, and often be at a theatre by 6:30 for a performance call and still create the kind of meals I truly enjoy cooking. Until I can find a way to marry these two passions, I enjoy collecting and creating recipes and trying them out on my family and friends.
