Since I gave sweets up for Lent I couldn't try these so I have to go by hubby saying they were good but they were "missing something." He's a big peanut butter/chocolate fan so I guess there just wasn't a "wow factor" here. Read More

These are too good!! I've made these twice. They are easy different and totally delicious. Everyone I've served them to agrees. I use pecans in place of walnuts. I use mini peanut butter cup baking pieces (find next to regular baking chips) and obviously don't chop them. I fold half the bag in with the nuts and press the rest on top as the recipe says. The drizzle is just extra yummy-ness! But I only use 1/2 cup chips 1 T. butter and 2 T. peanut butter for the drizzle and it is plenty. These bars are awesome thanks for the recipe! Read More

We loved this PB Bar!! The only thing I had a little trouble with was the baking time. I baked it 23 minutes and when I went to slice it they were VERY mushy. I put them back in the oven frosting and all for an additional 10 minutes. Who knows it might have just been my oven. We still ate the whole pan in a day and a half! Read More

Yum. I was in a hurry so I pressed the Reese's cups into the batter whole without halving them as the recipe says. I also frosted the bars hot then let them cool with the frosting on. They turned out great! Hard to stop eating them! I was careful not to overbake them after reading these reviews and took them out with the edges light brown. Read More

Both my husband and I thought these were very good. I thought that the chocolate chip topping could be reduced or even left off but he liked it just as written. Since I didn't have a full bag of peanut butter cups (Easter candy left-overs) I made just a half batch in an 8x8" pan and ended up baking a good 10 minutes longer than called for since they were still jiggly at 25 minutes. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
