Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

by: Aarthi






I modified this recipe as per my taste and availability of ingredients over here. The original recipe calls for marshmallows, but I substituted it with peanut butter. The peanut butter which I used is not the store bought stuff, this is a homemade peanut butter. The original recipe calls for half of normal sugar and half of brown sugar..In my place I could not found brown sugar so I substituted it with jaggery and honey,still it came out great.
