1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
chopped, unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
These were soo good! My whole family loved them! But you can only eat a few because they are sooooo rich!
I kind of recommend these. I followed the directions thoroughly and the came out very mushy. The bottom layer would not harden. The were great, however, after they sat in the fridge for a couple hours.
It is easier if you microwave the peanut butter mixture and chocolate chips until melted. Spread peanut butter mixture first, then the chocolate. No baking necessary.
This recipe is not worth the ingredients. They taste great, but they fall apart and are very flaky. I don't think that i'll make this recipe again....it wasn't worth all the time it took, but again they taste wonderful!!
Every layer of this peanut butter/chocolate bar was hard to manipulate into place, especially the crust. I underbaked the crust and it came out as gooey as the top two layers. I wasn't sure how the bottom layer was supposed to come out.
I gave this a 4 because everyone I served this to liked it.
I don't know if it's because I used a glass baking dish, that my pastry layer needed more time. I left it in 12 minutes and then 5 minutes more. It should have been in 5 minutes more because when I went to spread the peanut butter, it tore up the cookie. But maybe that way my fault it wasn't spreadable because I used crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy and nuts, although I did use the whole jar. Then the chocolate did not melt and I left the oven on while doing this since my pastry level fell apart.
Next time I will melt chocolate seperately, then spread on top.
turned out great
This is kind of an odd preparation, however the results were good. Overall, they had a full flavor, although normally I prefer peanut butter bars with the peanut butter in the dough, and less of a topping/frosting.
