Peanut Butter Bars I
These were delicious!Easy and quick to make - and so very yummy. Here's what I did after reading reviews (one of my favorite things about allrecipes!!): used coconut oil instead of butter, and I did use 1 full cup. I melted the coconut oil with the PB. I ground (very fine in the food processor) some toasted whole grain oats, probably about 1/4 to 1/2 cup, to bring the graham crackers to 2 cups. I also ground the graham crackers really fine as recommended by others. I added a pinch of salt, and used only 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (and honestly they were still a bit sweet for my taste - I will try next time with less and get back to you!). I lined my 9x13 pan with parchment to overhang the edges, and after pouring in the first layer stuck it in the freezer (it was a very very hot day here). I did add a bit of butter (1 Tbsp) to the chocolate layer, and after adding this to the bottom layer I re-froze the whole thing for about 20 minutes before taking the whole thing from the pan (using the parchment overhang) to cut into small squares. Then it was back into the fridge. Unbelievably delicious!!!

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
Delicious! I reduced the butter by 1/4 cup as suggested, and I used a portion of coconut oil. I also used old fashioned oats, so I did cook mine a bit longer. I think I'll add something else next time - maybe graham cracker crumbs, but not sure. I'll be making these again very soon!

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce
Wow. Just wow. I was looking for a decadent bitter chocolate fudge sauce, and with a few tweaks, this was it. Super easy recipe- I read the reviews and followed tips. Here's what I did: I used 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter plus 2 TBS butter, 2 cups sugar, and 1/2 cup cocoa. Oh, and I added a couple pinches of salt. After it came to a boil (and you do need to use a large saucepan) I used my immersion blender and blended constantly, letting it go about 9 minutes. Finally, I pulled off small portions and added a bit of peppermint extract to one (about 1/8 tsp to 1/2 cup sauce) and instant coffee granules to another (maybe 1/2 tsp to 1/2 cup of sauce). We served it hot over vanilla ice cream and it was AMAZING. My husband, who doesn't really like sweets, couldn't stop licking the spoon. Makes a lot, too, so this is a great recipe to use for gifts. Thanks for the great recipe!
