Chocolate Peanut Buddy Bars {SECRET RECIPE CLUB}

My life is BEYOND busy! I don't know why? I have two less kids at home, but it seems like I am so busy all the time, even my blogging has slowed way down, not due to lack of recipes, I have plenty of those. It's the season to BE BUSY, I guess! Although my busy is decorating for Christmas and watching Christmas movies, YEP! I started early this year, earlier then ever. I am just skipping Thanksgiving all together and going straight into Christmas. All 3, YEP 3 Christmas Trees are all up in my house already. And then today was Secret Recipe Club, I can't believe I almost missed it.... ah! Here is is at last!

Here is my SECRET RECIPE CLUB post for the month of November. The blog I had was called A Spoonful of Thyme and I pinned a whole bunch of fun recipes to try, but this one was made for my adopted son Garrett for his birthday.

Here we go with my 20th post for the Secret Recipe Club; Group C .

Here is a list of my past Secret Recipe Club recipes:


  1. I am happy that you tried the Buddy Bars. The first time I made them, I took them to work and they flew off the plate! Now that I am retired...I need somebody to eat the sweets that I want to make! I totally understand about being BUSY...I do believe I have more to do now than before I retired! Enjoy your decorations! If you have amy time....I could use help on Friday, after Thanksgiving! :-)

  2. These look great!! Chocolate peanut butter just rocks!

  3. I need to make these for my family. I can sympathize with being so busy. Not enough hours in a day.

  4. Love the name of these. They look awesome, I'm a big fan of bars, much easier than cookies, and they taste so good. This sounds like a great flavor combo, can't wait to try :)

  5. Enjoy the busy-ness! It drove me crazy when the kids were smaller! Now it's quiet around here...I miss that busy-ness sometimes and when I do look back I realize those were the best times of my life! :D
    Thanks for this recipe, I'm going to make it now. I send my kids boxes of goodies all the time because I still like to bake and make goodies! Most pass with approval! I think these will too! Happy Holidays!
