Lips Like Sugar: Four Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats for Halloween

Chocolate Peanut Butter Treats by Smitten Kitchen

What is it about chocolate peanut butter treats that screams Halloween, darlings?  Is it the collective memories of a generation of trick-or-treaters who knew that they best houses would have Reese’s Pieces or Peanut Butter Cups? Perhaps it’s that the fall inspires celebration for the return of sinfully luscious salty and sweet desserts too decadent for the stultifying heat of summer. Or maybe it’s that the pairing simply evokes Halloween’s signature spooky colors, orange and black. Whatever the reason, Halloween never feels complete without a bit of chocolate and peanut butter.  If you agree, look no further than Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitten for another kindred spirit, darlings. Her recipes for  Peanut Butter Cookies are so good they’ve made it into our steady rotation, while the devilishly decadent Peanut Butter Brownies and Peanut Butter Crispy Bars look perfect for little hands. Ten days til Halloween means you still have time to make them all, darlings, depending on your commitment to the magic peanut butter can make when it marries up with rich chocolate.  Enjoy!
