No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars

No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars are one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE homemade treats…and I’ve been making them since I was a young girl! If a young girl living in a college dorm with only small hot pot can make these….I guarantee you can too….in a heartbeat! Really, that’s about as long as they take to make!
