Easy Chocolate Dessert Recipe
This dessert goes out to anyone who is looking for a delicious chocolate dessert with a healthy amount of peanut butter. We actually created this chocolate/peanut butter concoction for a Third Thursday event and called it a Clark Bar Crumble. When it comes to desserts, we happen to believe that they should be easy.

- Yield: 8×8 Pan
- Prep Time: 5-10 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 45 Minutes
- 1½ Cups Sugar
- ½ Cup Light Corn Syrup
- ¼ Cup Water
- 1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
- 3 Cups Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a small sauce pot. Turn to high heat on the stove top.
- Cook the sugar to 290 degrees.
- While the sugar is cooking, place the peanut butter in a heat-resistant mixing bowl. (You will be adding the 290 degree melted sugar to the bowl, so make sure the mixture won’t melt the bowl.)
- Once the sugar is to temperature, pour into the mixing bowl with the peanut butter; mix together. **The whole concoction will seize up and become shard-like — this is normal.**
- Crumble the peanut butter mixture with a metal spoon. Pour the candy into a small roasting pan.
- Now create a double boiler. Place the chocolate chips in the top bowl and melt over medium-high heat. Continue stirring until all of the chips have melted.
- When the chips have melted, pour over the candy pieces. Smear to create an even coat over the candy. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
- Once the chocolate has cooled, remove from the refrigerator and break into large candy pieces by hand.
- Once you have finished boiling the sugar your pan will have a thick candy coat on it, seemingly impossible to clean. Simply fill the pot with water and return to high heat until the sugar has dissolved again — toss the water and wipe the pan clean.
- This is best served cold. If you leave it out during a party the chocolate will start to melt and you risk getting chocolaty hands.
