I actually use Chocolate-Peanut Butter Mallow Bars where I have the photo posted, but my computer or the site or whatever will not let me rate or save that recipe, so since the only difference is that recipe uses butter and this uses margarine, I'll go with it. This is a great recipe, it is not hard to put together and it tastes great. Do not overbake the first layer, or it will get dried out.
This seemed like a simple recipe but spreading the layers proved to be harder than I thought. It came out a little undercooked but was yummy just the same. Overall a good recipe but I think I would like it better without the peanut butter layer.
