Luscious flourless peanut butter and chocolate bars

My husband and I had company over Friday night and I decided to break my tradition of serving a store bought dessert.  I always cook the main meal myself, and usually go with President’s Choice Gluten-Free Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf Cake for an after dinner treat – this cake, by the way, is always well received. I must say I am impressed with PC’s gluten free products, and I hope they produce more.

But back to the real subject of this post: my homemade dessert. I had gotten the idea from my mom, who had surprised me a few weeks back with a flourless chocolate cake. It was tasty and it seemed like an easy recipe. I tweaked it a bit to satisfy my obsession with peanut butter and chocolate, and this is what I got:
