This recipe was very easy to make. It sure is important to cut the bars when they are warm! My bars hardened quite a bit - especially at the outer edge. I only had creamy peanut butter and it seemed to me like there was too much of it. If I make these again, I definitely will use crunchy and not substitute with creamy. I think that really made a big difference.
