No bake peanut butter bars with an Oreo crust

This is the time of year I dip into my no bake recipes… Especially considering today it is 92 and humid. No need to turn the oven on! You have probably seen variations of this recipe before. I opted to use an dark chocolate Oreo crust as the base. You can use whatever flavor you want. I chose dark chocolate Oreos because my husband opened that bag and ate 1.. So I needed to do something with the rest.

You can also use Graham crackers, nilla wafers or those wafer cream sandwich cookies in the pb layer.

The only thing that is annoying about these bars is they are hard to cut once the chocolate sets. I cut them before the chocolate set and they were a but of a mess. ☺
