Can't go wrong with this dessert. This was easy to make and tasted yummy. I made the recipe exactly as written and we all enjoyed these. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
Very yummy! Great for when you need a "peanut butter cup fix." My dad said they taste just like the store bought candy, except it's cheaper to make! The PB texture came out really smooth even though it looked "rough" or gritty, when I poured it in the pan. I lined the pan with foil paper and put the pan with the PB mixture in the freezer while I melted the chocolate. After I put on the choc. mixture I put it back in the freezer for 30 mins. and then took it out and cut it with a pizza cutter and stuck it back in the freezer. It set-up nicely and was ready to eat in no time! I put the rest of bars in a container in the fridge. Thanks for sharing.
I've never tried this recipe with peanut butter in the chocolate topping, but this was a tradition to make every Christmas in my family growing up... we'd take them around for neighborhood treats. I also made them for a church party and I had at least 10 people ask me for the recipe! One of my favorite candies. (and my family's, too!)
