Peanut Butter Bars

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Doglover61aka Earnh

I looked through quite a few recipes here and didn't find one quite like this. Had these at a cookout and they disappeared in a flash. My hubby asked me to get the recipe. That's when I knew they were really good!! Servings depend on what size you cut the bars into.

well these are really really good...not exactly what I thought they would be(thought they would be more like a frosted rice krispy treat and they are NOT) followed your ingredients and instructions to a T... only thing I did was have everything all measured ahead of time so it was easy just dump & go... the "icing "is VERY awsome and a nice addition I would not thought of and I can see its use on a cake I was a little worried that they were too soft...but they sat up very nicely after they cooled they are really really a good way.. I did one mistake..I put them in my glass 9x13 glass dish..don't know where my head was at on that one as you state very plainly jelly roll pan...which might be why it took a little longer for them to firm up...and why the "icing" is a little thicker than it would be if I would of used the jelly roll pan... but they sure come together very easy and hardly any ingredients.. I see these as a addition on my christmas cookie tray.. TRY'll be pleasently surprised at how easy and good they are....

  2. Add the peanut butter and Rice Krispies and mix well. Spread into a jelly roll pan.
  3. Heat the stick of butter, brown sugar and the milk until the butter is melted. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and enough powdered sugar to make it spreadable. Ice bars and let cool.
