Questions & Replies

  1. I don't care for peanut butter. Does anyone have a suggestion for how to make the chocolate topping without it?


  1. I've not made this recipe yet but will soon. I wanted to share a tip. I used to make a similar recipe called pine bark. With that recipe we would freeze it and break it apart like peanut brittle. Much easier than cutting.
  2. Yummy! They definately were crumbly when cut, I have tried freezing them after they were cut, but not out of the pan. That seemed to help, but they melt quick. I wonder if parchment paper underneath them might make cutting and serving easier. Then, I could just pull out the paper and peel it off. Definately sinful, as I can't seem to stop eating them.
  3. i made these last night for thanksgiving and they are gone!!! i tasted one and our neighbors taste testd some and DH tried a "few" and now i have to make another batch. are these ever wonderful!!!!i used low sodium Club crackers.
  4. These are really really good and for taste deserve 5+ stars. I would give 3 stars for ease of prep and cutting, though. They created a lot of dishes (a pet peeve) and after chilling were difficult to cut - I ended up using a metal spatula to slice through because a knife just wasn't working. The first one I dished out the layers didn't want to stick together and the bottom cracker stuck to the pan but the rest seemed to be OK. Now that that's all over with though I'm looking forward to eating them! They taste *great*!! Thanks CaramelPie :)
  5. LOVE these cookies! Perfectly sweet and delicious. My only suggestion is to line a parchment paper on the pan, this really helps to remove the cookies out of the pan easily and without a mess.


I'm a stay-at-home mom, school volunteer, church volunteer, etc., and I live in Middle Tennessee. I like to read, visit the mountains, crochet, cook, etc. My favorite cookbook at this time is Recipe Hall of Fame Quick & Easy Cookbook. My passions are raising children with good moral character, being a good Christian, and food! My pet peeves are recipe instructions that leave out what to do with one of the ingredients, and people who won't put their shopping carts in the cart corrals! I have twin daughters who are in their second year of college and a son who is 16. My girls' college is close enough that I can come by every couple of weeks or so. When I tell them I'm coming, they ask Are you bearing baked goods?. Usually, I am, to the excitement of their suitemates!
