    Peanut Butter Bars

    Michelle Gibbs from JAMESTOWN, RI

    This was a great recipe. I made it for my church and everyone loved them. They are much better than the packaged kind. Several members of the church loved them so much that they asked for the recipe. I will definitley make these again!

    LOTS OF RAVE REVIEWS

    Pam Iwamoto from ALBUQUERQUE, NM

    Took it to work and provided a nice snack in the afternoon. The group really enjoyed it. Asked for copies of the recipe.

    Wonderful, but NOT light!

    KAREN M from MACOMB, MI

    Very, very good dessert, but those that reported that it is "light" might want to reconsider. All that butter and chocolate and such, does not make it "light", that's for sure! Make it and serve small slices!

    WOW!!!!

    Sandra Clements from JACKSON, MO

    This is so delicious - you can't eat just one piece. It has all of the right ingredients - chocolate and peanut butter. I also tried the chopped peanut butter cups and that was so good. I will definitely make this again. It didn't last long at my house.

    Tray Sayama from SAN JOSE, CA

    This was such a sinfully good delight! What a way to satisfy my PB craving! Dessert couldn't get any better than this.

    Like a giant peanut butter cup!

    HANNAH FLAUAUS from CHESAPEAKE, VA

    I made this for 40+ people for our monthly "birthday treat" at the office, and it received rave reviews! I used chocolate chips instead of the baking bars and it worked out great. I also garnished the top with chopped peanut butter cups for an extra bang. I have to disagree with the other reviews though - this is definitely NOT a light dessert - it's incredibly rich. But oh so good! I don't recommend making it in bulk however - too much powdered sugar makes for one big mess in the kitchen!

    Simple and Delicious

    Jessica Seneca from Staten Island, NY

    I usually make desserts like this for my husband. Rarely do I ever indulge myself, but I couldn't resist this one. It is so light, but definitely sweet. I just can't believe how easy it was to make.

    The BEST dessert ever !!!

    Maya from San Antonio, TX

    WOW, WOW, WOW !!! This dessert is soooo delicious ! I made this just for my husband and kids since I was on a special diet but the moment I tasted it, that's it I could NOT fight such temptation--it's a very addictive, tasty, and mouth-watering dessert. If you love peanut butter, this is gotta be the best for ya. My kids and husband were very impressed. I also brought it to a potluck and it was the very first one to disappear on the table. Very ideal to impress guests !!!

    Layered Chocolatey Peanut Butter Delight

    PAULA MITSUYASU from Ewa Beach, HI

    This is the most delicious, most awesome dessert to make and enjoy. Easy to make and light, not to rich. For the chocolate layer I used semi-sweet chocolate. I did not have the baking bars. It turned out great, you should make this if you want to impress someone especially if they like peanut butter.
