Recipe by Becca

This recipe is a favorite of my family. It is very quick and easy with few ingredients. This is a thin but rich bar with 3 delicious layers.

These were not for me. The middle layer felt too much like a spoonful of butter and the middle layer didn't stick to the crust. The top layer was too soft and melty making the whole thing gooey. I didn't have any problems with the crust or getting them out of the pan though. One of my kids thought these were great - just like pb cups.
