The divas are experts at keeping cool – we love leaving the oven off and making homemade goodies that only look complicated, a splurge with so little effort. This dreamy recipe has a little bit of everything: chocolate, salty pecans, peanut butter and whipping cream – what’s not to love?
Forget a bottle of wine as a hostess gift, wrap these bars in a pretty container and share the love. Happy holidays!

6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup creamy peanut butter
