Chocolate and Peanut Butter Squares

I found these little gems on pinterest and new I had to try them out. Boy where they divine!! For all you peanut butter and chocolate fans out there this recipe is for you. So simple to make and fast as well. If you need a peanut butter and chocolate fix these babies are for you.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Squares
1 pound white chocolate(i just used white chocolate chips)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or 12 oz of chocolate
1/2 cup heavy cream(no sustitutions)

Line a 9x9 or 8x8 inch pan with parchment or waxed paper, leaving an overhang. Melt your white chocolate in the microwave for about one minutes, stir until chocolate is melted and creamy. Add the peanut butter and stir until blended and smooth. You may need to microwave an additional few seconds to get chocolate to melt all the way. (i had too but watch closely don't cook to long) Spread this mixture into your pan. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until a bit firm.

In another bowl melt the chocolate or chocolate chips with the heavy cream in 30 second increments(in the microwave), stiring after each increment, until smooth and creamy. Pour over the peanut butter mixture . Chill for 3 hours or until set. Later, lift out the candy and cut into small squares or shapes with a quality small cookie cutter.
