I prepared these with creamy peanut butter and milk chocolate chips. The vanilla wafers are a nice change from the traditional graham cracker base of most peanut butter bars. Very rich, cut them small. :-)

These are great tasting bars & are so easy to make! I'd use crunchy peanut butter no matter what, 'cause I like it so much! That, along with the taste of chocolate....well, this is, as said, a great bar, & a nice addition to my bars & cookies file! Thanks much for sharing it!
