Reese’s Peanut Butter Bark

Did you survive Halloween?  Well too bad if you didn’t because Thanksgiving is in 3 weeks.  Ah!!  Kidding.  You’ll be fine.  Take a deep breath.  Make this Peanut Butter bark and you’ll forget all bout your in-laws coming into town, roasting and entire turkey and hoping it doesn’t get dry and 15 kids running around your house screaming.  
 
Ummm…get a bottle of wine too.  Trust me.  Chocolate and Peanut Butter alone can only do so much.

    Since we are going to our son and daughter-in-laws home for Thanksgiving maybe I better bring a double batch of this (we don't drink!)
    Nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter!
