Anyone else know that feeling of satisfaction when you recreate your favorite store-bought treat right at home in your own kitchen? Well that feeling, my friends, is one of the BEST feelings. Especially when you make something as PERFECT as these Homemade Peanut Butter Perfect Bars.

When I tried my first Perfect Bar ever, I immediately fell in LOVE. The soft texture paired with the strong peanut buttery flavor and sweet hint of honey is the most heavenly combination you will EVER consume.

When I visited my home in Boston this past summer, of course I stocked my suitcase with multiple boxes of my favorite bars, including the famous Perfect Bar. Considering I eat one on the daily, my stock is sadly growing smaller and smaller as we speak.

THAT’S where these HOMEMADE Peanut Butter Perfect Bars come in. I cannot imagine my life without my daily hunk of sweet nut butter. So right before I finish up my last two packaged perfect bars, I just had to create my own recipe real swift. This, to feel ensured that I would not have to give up this absolutely PERFECT bar of goodness.

My friends, I am absolutely OVERJOYED to announce that I do not have to!!! I have successfully recreated my favorite flavor of Perfect Bars—first try! And I am even more excited to announce that I’m sharing the recipe with you all today!

Enjoy them :)
