so is it bad that I made these last night and after tasting them I hid them in the back of the fridge hoping no one finds them?? WOW these are good!! Listening to other reviews I melted the butter and added the sugars to melt (I used splenda brown sugar and xylitol instead of sugar to make them as a sugar free version) used sf hersheys dark chocolate chunky natural pb for the topping and cut them into brownie size squares so I don't over indulge. SOO GOOD!! Read More

I really wasn't impressed. The recipe is very well written and it was easy to make but we just didn't care for the whole combination. My kids did enjoy making it though so maybe we will try some other things with oatmeal. Thanks for sharing sorry we are so picky! Read More

These were extremely quick and easy to make. I used crunchy PB and semisweet chocolate chips for the topping and they turned out great. I found that the bottom oaty layer was a tad crunchy though so if I make them again I think I'll melt the sugars with the butter so that they dissolve because I didn't really like the undissolved crunchy sugar crystals. The taste was amazing though (the topping is to die for!!!) so maybe I'll try them again with the variation I said. Some of my family refuses to eat them due to the crunchiness...more for me:) Read More

I run my own cafe and am proud to make all the sweets homemade. I visit this website often and was looking for something quick and easy when I found the recipe for the butterfinger bars. I received rave reviews from those (not to mention from myself) that ate at my cafe that day. Thank you for such a quick easy and fantastic recipe! Read More

Very good! They sorta taste like chocolate covered granola bars. My only complaint is that the bars are hard to cut into. Maybe melting the sugar with the butter would help that. Read More

These take virtually no effort to make and are perfect when in need of a quick dessert. (They look similar to rice krispie treats with chocolate on top!!) Read More

My family loved these! Even my mom who is not too fond of peanut butter said they were great. I baked them for the right amount of time but instead of being "toasty" I found that it was quite bubbly...not toasty at all. I still took them out of the oven at the point and they still turned out perfect...not sure what went wrong. Read More

These were awesome! They were super easy to put together. There were a couple of things that the recipie should have mentioned -- When you heat chocolate chips in the microwave you need to do it at half or less power for small intervals so the chocolate doesn't burn. Also you need to put these bars in the refridgerator for a couple of hours after you make them to make them harden. I agree they were a bit sweet so I might cut some of the sugar next time. Read More
