Peanut Butter Biscoff Bars
Be warned these bars are addictive and should be eaten in moderation only!
They are not exactly healthy but they are completely delicious.

So get your sweet tooth’s ready….its going to be a sugar fuelled ride!
1/2 cup @nuttelexspread
1/2 cup coconut oil
Melt the butter and coconut oil together in a pan.
Beat the peanut butter with a whisk or stand mixer for a minute or so then add the melted butter/oil and mix untill well combined and smooth.
Sift in the icing sugar and mix again.
Smash the biscoff biscuits with a rolling pin until you have rough crumbs with some larger pieces then stir into the peanut mixture
Spread into a lined 20x20cm tin and then chill until set.
Once chilled ,melt some good quality dark chocolate like @living_koko with some coconut oil (and biscoff if using)and then pour ontop of the base.
Pop it back into the fridge to set then slice into bars.
