I don't understand how so many people didn't get this recipe right. It is as easy as they come. 16 oz. of graham crackers isn't just one of the small plastic packages. In the box I bought it was 3 plastic packages of crackers. I really liked this recipe. I added an additional 1/2 cup peanut butter and they turned out great! Plan on sharing because this is a big batch and they are rich. Read More

This recipe has to be wrong or it's just the most disgusting thing ever. There is no way you can "press" this gooey mess into a pan and the unspecified "package of graham crackers" just leaves it up to your imagination companies package their crackers differently from each one. This mess with a HUGE waste of butter ended up in the trash. Read More

The first time I made these I realized the butter amount should have been two STICKS not two CUPS. After making this adjustment my family and I have enjoyed these bars several times. Read More

WOW. REALLY SWEET AND REALLY GOOD! Had to Sub chocolate grahams and white morsels- kept everything else the same. The ingredient ratios are correct. I can't wait to make this with the regular grahams and the chocolate chips- although this version was really good too! Read More

I had great success with this recipe. We live in Malaysia where we cannot get Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I made these for a Christmas Open House and had RAVE reviews from it from our American friends. I cut the candy into bite size pieces and placed them in candy cups. These will be a yearly Holiday treat at our house! Read More
