Peanut Butter Whopper Squares

Peant Butter Whopper Squares

This is the second recipe I made from Eric Landlard’s Home Bake. Read my review of the book here. Eric calls this recipe “Malteser Squares”. Typically in the UK these types of bars are called tray bakes. This is a simple no bake recipe and I jazzed it up using some Peanut Butter Whoppers I found and made a peanut butter topping using cookie dough bites.

I found the bars to be a little crumbly but maybe I was too eager to eat them and took them out of the fridge too soon! I stuck them into the freezer to keep them extra cold. The bars are pretty intense. I could only eat about one at a time.

These squares are stupidly easy to make and great treat to make at short notice.

  1. Yum looks like my kind of treat! Where did you get the peanut butter whoppers from? I want some too! (peanut butter addict here!)

    • I bought them at Cyber Candy on a whim! I ate half the box before I decided I wanted to use them. I went back and they were sold out :( so that is why there are some maltesers thrown in there too.

  2. I don’t remember seeing these in the book, will have to go back and look – I simply love the look of whoppers!

    • The multi colored whoppers and the different texture of the cookie dough bites definietly make them more interesting than a plain maltesers tray bake.
