Instead of melting the chocolate to drizzle on top I simply added whole semi-sweet chocolate morsels. You could even try the peanut butter kind or even reese's pieces. This was a popular and easy dessert.
When I made these I made it exactly as suggested other than using soften butter rather than fully melted. And I added some chopped peanuts between the chocolate and peanut butter. I made them specifically for my boyfriend because he likes peanut butter much more than I do. When I tried them I knew they were too rich but he agreed that there was waayy to much peanut butter. I think if you used a 9x9 pan and cut the peanut butter mixture on top in half it would be descent. I'm was a little disappointed because all of the rave reviews had me pretty excited. Overall a big disappointment for us, I'm gonna give them to the teenage boys next door.
These are a yummy treat, very easy to make. My 5-year-old made them with me and he had a lot of fun pressing the crust into the pan and then (gently!) pushing the peanut butter mixture into the chocolate layer. Also, I completely forgot to add the tablespoon of milk and it turned out fine without. The cook time on the crust seemed a little long, though. Just be sure, as one reviewer mentioned already, not to overcook it. It would be better a little lighter and fluffier than mine came out. Next time...
I thought these were pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly,but my peanut butter mixture was not crumbly at all, it was like thick peanut butter, so it was hard to spread, it turned out more marbled than layered...maybe I should refrigerate it first next time??? They were good anyhow, just not as pretty.
very simple but my kid just loved it; he thinks the Elfs made the peanut butter...do not overcook the crust, though...
As of late, after all I've baked for my husband (Trust me, it's alot!!) now all of a sudden he thinks these are his ALL TIME FAVORITES!! Creamy, addictive, like candy bars, and he claims even better coming from the freezer! So you know now they freeze well too! Make sure you plan the way you'd like to top it with chocolate. Presentation is also important. I drizzled one way with the chocolate, then crossed over the other way! Pretty for chocolate! Thank you for your recipe!
Very yummy! I added more powdered sugar to the topping to make it more crumbly- going according to the recipe it just becomes thicker peanut butter. Besides that very easy and good!
These bars are awesome. I doubled the recipe and used a jelly roll pan and it worked well. Very yummy!
