No Bake Chocolate and Peanut Butter Slice

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Slice 

It is interesting how certain flavours are forever linked.  Childhood is often the catalyst for these bonds, memories and tastes permanently intertwined.   Growing up in ‘The States’ I have always had a special place in my heart for the iconic combination of chocolate and peanut butter!  A cliché American flavour combo I know, but what can I say; there is just something very special about the slightly savory taste of peanut butter with the creamy sweetness of rich chocolate.  This is surely a match made in heaven!

Not only does this recipe bring together these two fabulous flavours, it does so in such a way as also providing a quick and easy dessert option that does not even require baking!  Regardless of whether the peanut butter and chocolate combination is an old favourite or yours or a more recent discovery, I can heartily vouch for the popularity of this tasty treat!
