YUMMY!!! I made these this afternoon to take to a party this evening(it's a little boy's FIRST b'day party). I did not have butter flavour shortening, so I used margarine instead. Now about the dough mixture- This was enough for 9 Snicker bars for me. The tenth one went back into the refrigerator,lol. I made these in an oven that was pre-heated to 200C. I baked these for 21 minutes(a bit too long bcoz I now notice that the base of these bars tends to get burnt if baked for 5 mins. longer). That was a big mistake on my part, I should've stopped at 16 minutes, which I will do next time and in future. Now I must tell you that I can't wait to try a recipe once it's ready, and, I just had to take a small bite of these bars. Oh magnificent! When warm and out of the oven, the chocolate and peanut butter creamy and all melted taste oh sooo good! You have to be thanked alot for a yummy recipe. I'm taking these to the party tonight and I can bet, these will be gone in 60 seconds;)! THANKS THANKS AND MANY MORE THANKS for a tasty treat!
