These treats are always a favorite whenever I take them somewhere, but especially to those who love PB and chocolate! These are SO good!! I originally got the recipe from the PB Cookbook for Kids. Note: You can double the recipe and put it in a 9*13 pan.

I LOVE these! I will probably do as the other reviewer and use just semi-sweet chocolate chips on the top rather than the butter/powdered sugar mixture next time. Delicious!

Very nice. I used chunky peanut butter, omitted the extra nuts. I melted 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips, spread this on top of the bars, and did not use the powdered sugar icing. Once the chocolate set completely, they really did taste like chocolate bars!
