Can I make No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars with other nut butters and different chocolates instead?

Yes! Feel free to substitute your preferred nut butter: almond, cashew, sunflower seed, etc… Just make sure it’s smooth enough to mix easily. Chunky peanut butter would work as well if you want some texture.

You can also use milk or dark chocolate in place of semi-sweet. They are all delicious. We just prefer semi-sweet.

Tips:

Make a big batch and freeze these peanut butter bars for up to 2 months in advance— thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Sifting the powdered sugar will eliminate any clumps, so make sure you sift!
