My husband really loved these bars. I thought they had a good taste but were hard to cut and were very crumbly. I may try this recipe with a little honey mixed in next time to keep the bars together. Read More

A great quick and easy desert! I would recommend using a bit less peanut butter-maybe 1 1/2 cups, and a bit more chocolate. All of that peanut butter made it a bit too rich. Read More

Very good! I took this to our New Year's Day dinner, and it was a huge hit. It tasted like a mixture of a reese's cup and a butterfinger (with the crunch from the rice cereal). I really didn't measure, but I used one stick of butter, creamy peanut butter and powdered sugar, mixed by hand, then added the rice cereal until it came together. Poured the chocolate on top and stuck it in the fridge. Too easy. Read More

it's a little hard for kids to mix it but they have fun putting all the ingredients in...3 cups of rice cereal is a little much i would stick to 2 to 2 and a half cups it got a little crumbly with 3. Read More

Make this recipe and people will ask for more. It is one of the best desserts I have ever had. I noticed that these bars are best served chilled. They seem to get a bit messy when they get to room temperature. However it doesn't matter because THEY ARE SO GOOD! Read More

Delicious! A few changes I made: I added chocolate chips in the batter instead of melted chocolate over top. I love it this way. Also after I refrigerate if for a bit I cut it into squares and put them in baggies to freeze them. That way it lasts a lot longer and I like the frozen treat. I don't know if others will though. I eat one of these a day; I'm addicted! Read More

I can't believe how easy this recipe was to make! I made it before work in about 35 minutes. It got rave reviews by all my co-workers. I didn't have quite enough sugar (about 1 2/3 cup) but I think it turned out just fine. Not too sweet but with an intense peanut buttery crunch! Read More
