    Absolutely amazing, this recipe was passed on to me by a dear friend many years ago. Good any time, it has been a tradition to serve it on our holiday dessert table. Very quick and easy to make, this is one the kids will gladly help with!

      My son is a peanut butter cup fan and he loved these! They are so easy to make it's almost ridiculous. The bars set up quite soft and need to be kept refrigerated. Try these, you will love them. Made for Pick a Chef 2011 event. Thx Sharflan!

      After making these little tasties, I shared them with a friend of mine who is nuts about those really awful PB cups, & guess what? He grudgingly admitted that these were much better tasting, by far! Thank you so much for a great treat & a keeper of a recipe!
