Peanut Butter Chocolate Layer Bars

"These are scrumptious! You cannot stop at just one! They are rich and so good!When you have chocolate, coconut, and dry roasted peanuts, just to name a few of the ingredients, you just know it's got to be good. I don't know where I got this from, but I've been making them for a lot of years."

  1. I crushed 20 cookies which equals 2 cups of cookie crumbs, works in correct porportion to the butter for a crust. This is a nice version of the seven layer bar recipe, which I enjoyed very much, didnt seem too sweet at all. Nice bar will make again with the recipe adjustment.
  2. My favorite combo, peanut butter and chocolate. I crushed 20 cookies and ended up with 2 1/2 cups instead of 1 cup, so that's what I used and added a bit extra butter and had a nice thick crust. I used a mixture of 3/4 cups chocolate chips to 1/4 cup peanut butter chips. Didn't use coconut as we didn't have any. These disappeared quickly...ever with my alterations. I'll be making these again!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
