Wow, this has to be the best Peanut Butter Cookie Bar recipe I have ever made. You all have got to try this one.
Since I gave sweets up for Lent I couldn't try these so I have to go by hubby saying they were good, but they were "missing something." He's a big peanut butter/chocolate fan so I guess there just wasn't a "wow factor" here.
These are too good!! I've made these twice. They are easy, different, and totally delicious. Everyone I've served them to agrees. I use pecans in place of walnuts. I use mini peanut butter cup baking pieces (find next to regular baking chips) and obviously don't chop them. I fold half the bag in with the nuts and press the rest on top as the recipe says. The drizzle is just extra yummy-ness! But I only use 1/2 cup chips, 1 T. butter, and 2 T. peanut butter for the drizzle, and it is plenty. These bars are awesome, thanks for the recipe!
We loved this PB Bar!! The only thing I had a little trouble with was the baking time. I baked it 23 minutes and when I went to slice it, they were VERY mushy. I put them back in the oven, frosting and all for an additional 10 minutes. Who knows, it might have just been my oven. We still ate the whole pan in a day and a half!
Absolutely wonderful! The outsides were a little cakeish for me but the middle's were TO DIE FOR! Definitely do not overcook.
A keeper! Very good. Don't overbake! Everyone loved these.
Yum. I was in a hurry, so I pressed the Reese's cups into the batter whole, without halving them as the recipe says. I also frosted the bars hot, then let them cool with the frosting on. They turned out great! Hard to stop eating them! I was careful not to overbake them after reading these reviews, and took them out with the edges light brown.
Both my husband and I thought these were very good. I thought that the chocolate chip topping could be reduced or even left off, but he liked it just as written. Since I didn't have a full bag of peanut butter cups (Easter candy left-overs) I made just a half batch in an 8x8" pan, and ended up baking a good 10 minutes longer than called for since they were still jiggly at 25 minutes. Thanks for the recipe!
