I have been making this exact recipe for nearly 20 years and it never lasts more than a day around this house! Crunchy and sweet and peanut butter-who can resist?
Wow! These are fabulous! I used cocoa krispies for mine and loved the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. These are pretty rich so I cut them in smaller squares. Really perfect with a cup of coffee.
