Made this recipe as given & we thoroughly enjoyed the combo of peanuts & chocolate in these little treats! I did cut them a bit smaller, & had 16 squares, but I'm sure that didn't cut back on the time needed to devour them all! Definitely a very nicely dressed up crispy bar! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
