This recipe is from my sister's mother-in-law. It is my take-everywhere recipe and is often requested by coworkers and friends. It's an easy, quick, no-bake recipe. I have a hard time not eating-as-I-go when I make these. As a personal choice, I use milk chocolate chips, but semi-sweet are good too. They take about 20 minutes to make, the long cook time includes the hour of refrigeration for bars to set.
Peanut Butter and Chocolate rice crispy bars.
I got the recipe from a friend of the family after years of begging for it. Everyone loves these, they have always been a big hit at the school sporting event snack stands.
I begged for this recipe from my next-door neighbor, when I was in jr. high. She and her sisters used to do some catering on the side, and this was one of their most requested items. This recipe utilizes yellow cake mix for the crust, and not a single egg! Rich, gooey, and oh so good! (NOTE: Pillsbury Moist Deluxe is the best cake mix for these.)
This is such a unique and tasty dessert or snack. Such a nice change from the chocolate brownie. I cannot wait to make with cranberries and nuts at Thanksgiving! This recipe was posted on foodnetwork.com by Paula Deen; and the creator of this wonderful recipe was one of a hundred finalists in the 39th Pillsbury Bake-off.
I've made these several times and they are always an ooy gooy favorite. I make these low-fat, by subbing egg sub and vanilla yogurt for the eggs and oil in the brownie mix. The amounts are approximate to the type of mix you use. Please follow directions below for subbing according to your package. And by all means if you aren't watching your waistline, go for the "real deal."
If you like Butterfingers candy and cheesecake this is for you! I have heard it said that this could use more sugar. I think it depends on just how sweet your sweet tooth is. Taste and add more if you think it would benefit. *PLEASE NOTE:There is a final filling ingredient that the Zaar computer doesn't like and keeps refusing to publish. This is:
6 small chocolate crispy peanut butter flavored candy bars (like Butterfinger), chopped into medium sized pieces.
These are so easy - a little bit of chocolate heaven. I have been making these for over 10 years and have been asked more for this recipe than any other. They are named for a woman that gave a friend the recipe - we never knew Wanda but we love her for sharing this one. One reviewer has suggested I rename these "Chocolate Insanity Bars." :) * Some have had trouble with them being gooey - my advice is to use national brand name condensed milk, not store brand, as it tends to be thicker. Also, keep them refrigerated or in a cooler. Enjoy!
If you like capuccino cheesecake, which I love, you gotta try this lower calorie latte version cheesecake bars. They are so tasty. Cut them into triangles and serve them like cheesecake. WARNING: You must make this in a 13x9-inch pan or they don't cook right.
This is the brownie recipe we use most. It is from Nigella Lawson's "How To Be a Domestic Goddess". My Dear Daughter who is not a Goddess in the kitchen sure has success with this recipe. So I thought I would share this recipe with you in case you to have a domestic challenged loved one in your kitchen.
This recipe makes delicious little fudge squares that would be excellent on a holiday cookie tray. They are SWEET but really flavorful. Perfect as small squares. If you like Chocolate and Cherries this recipe is for you. The candy bar was originally called Cherry Chase, and then Cherry Chaser, before becoming known as Cherry Mash. It can be found throughout the Midwest in most grocery and convenience stores and mass-merchandise outlets. I made them with pecans b/c I did not have peanuts and they were still delicious. I found the cherry chips at our Super Walmart next to the chocolate chips.
