    Hadice's Note:

    My mom always makes these for the 4th of July, but they are good anytime! Perfect for potlucks, parties, and dessert trays. The baking time may vary due to altitude or humidity. Bars are ready when golden brown and toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Layers from bottom up: cookie bar, 1 cup peanut butter, chocolate frosting. Prep and cooking time do not account for cooling time.

      Made this to bring to work and folks liked them a lot.
      Mine took a lot longer to bake than the recipe says - I wasn't sure how big a "jelly-roll" pan is supposed to be, so maybe my 9x13 made them thicker.

      These are delicious!! I used creamy peanut butter in the bars because I didn't have crunchy. They turned out fine, but would have been better if I'd followed the directions. They're still delicious, and this recipe makes a large pan of them.

      Ohhhh my Godddd, talk about delicious!! These are so good. Next time, though, I will probably make just a little less frosting--the more to be able to shovel into my mouth :P These are super good though.
