It is easier if you microwave the peanut butter mixture and chocolate chips until melted. Spread peanut butter mixture first, then the chocolate. No baking necessary.

I kind of recommend these. I followed the directions thoroughly and the came out very mushy. The bottom layer would not harden. The were great, however, after they sat in the fridge for a couple hours.
