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.
