Amazing and decadent treat! Made it with large marshmallows (what I had at the time) and the peanut caramel pooled around the marshmallows giving it a kind of 'rocky road' looking appearance wi...

Nice peanut-y treats. It made a big batch and my Chickies loved them.

Love these! I used a combination of milk choc and p.b. chips the first time and all p.b. chips the second time - both were great!!!

Good bars but VERY rich. Cut the servings in half.
