Oh, how I love a good 2-ingredient recipe.

I’ve been working hard in the Mom Spark kitchens on quick and easy recipes like the one I’m sharing today. If you’re a busy working mom like me, then you know the importance of making breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert (yes, it’s an important recipe category) as simple as possible. Not only does it save us time, but it saves us money on ingredients and I’m all about saving that cash for other things. Like fancy coffee or a new journal, ya know?

Okay, back to today’s recipe.

If you love peanut butter cups and chocolate chip cookies recipes, you’re going to go wild for this delicious, rich dessert. You may have to control yourself from eating the whole batch. I know I did.
