Yum! I like these so much, I had to write in and tell everyone about a variation I just made that turned out really nicely. Add 1/2 cup chopped peanuts to the batter. Pour a regular size bag of semisweet chocolate chips over the top of the bars as soon as they come out of the oven. After a few minutes to allow for melting, evenly spread the chocolate over top. (This makes a very fast and easy frosting). Top with about a tablespoon more finely chopped peanuts. Everyone loved these, and I'm sure you will too!
i have to make these at least every weekend my son just loves them,, thanks shapeweaver
These were delicious but I only used 1-1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips in the batter and nothing on top and they were great. I didnt want to make them too rich but for the people out there who like very rich stuff could use all of the chocolate chips. Great recipe and very fun to work with. Thank you for a great recipe, Julesong:)
Hey there-My youngest daughter and I made these last night. Not only was the recipe easy to make, the fall out was easy to clean and the Peanut Butter Bars came out great. Nice and moist-ish in the middle with a nice peanut butter flavor. Thanks for posting-I now have "Lunch Snack" for the rest of the week! Di
THE best peanut butter bars that I've ever had. Easy to make, easy to modify. Streaks of chocolate syrup one time, a coat of powdered sugar the next. It's been all good! THANK YOU for the wonderful recipe!
Gosh, we soooo wanted to love these. The only thing I did not add were the chocolate chips since they were optional. We thought these were dry. I did not overcook them, the peanut butter flavor was not strong. These were more like eating a slice of bread with a little of peanut butter flavor. Sorry, maybe next time I will add more peanut butter and less flour. Sorry, but like I said, I will not give up and I will try an adjustment to our liking and post the results then if better.
These were alright - definitely not as good as I was expecting. I decided to add the chocolate chips to the bars and used them as a frosting. If I made again, I would probably add them to the bars, but would defintiely skip as a frosting, the extra chocolate took away from the peanut butter and was way too overpowering for me.
I remember.....will make soon. Thank you for sharing.
I was very happy to find this recipe. I loved these things when I was in school. There is one difference. In my school district, our Peanut Butter Bars had a nice glaze so I mixed between 1/3 and 1/2 C of Karo Syrup with a nice BIG Tablespoon of Peanut Butter, mixed it til blended, brushed it over the top as soon as I pulled it out of the oven, let it cool, cut it into bars and .......perfect!
These bars didn't turn out for me. They fell apart when I tried to remove them from the pan and the flavour was bland.
