  1. Lightly mist a 9x13 pan with non-stick spray, and line it with parchment paper, allowing excess to drape over the sides and act as a "handle" to pull the bars out later.

  2. Sitr the honey and sugar together in a small pot over medium-low heat.

  3. When the mixture comes to a boil, take it off the heat and stir in the peanut butter and salt until smooth.

Recipe Notes

*This can be done over a double-boiler OR in the microwave, in 20-second bursts, stirring after each interval.  For a softer, smoother topping, try stirring 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil into the melted chocolate mixture.
