this recipe is super simple to make and only uses one pan. I almost have to double my batch just to keep some around for more than a day. the peanut butter mixture is almost like a taffy. very tasty all on its own.

I had this recipe for a long time and then it mysteriously disappeared. I was so sad! I was thrilled to find it again here. Very yummy recipe! For a delicious variation, you can sprinkle chocolate chips on top after you spread it in the cake pan. When the chips are shiny, spread them across the candy before cutting into squares. Yummy!!
