    If you love Peanut Butter then Try these!

    maria posella-behling from Raritan, NJ

    These are super easy and really satisfy a peanut lovers craving for all that is salty and sweet. The chips are sweet and creamy, the Carnation Milk adds a lush flavor and texture to the bars and the salted peanuts add the right crunch!Plus there's the chocolate graham cracker crust. What is there not to love! I make these a few times a year and my family loves them.

    These bars are a Superbowl tradition in my home! They are easy, and delicious, and EVERY one loves them! I use plain graham cracker crumbs instead of chocolate, and they are still incredible! Adding shredded coconut on top adds so much more! I recommend it!

    These bars were so simple and so delicious. My boyfriend and co-workers loved them. I couldn't find chocolate graham crackers so I used the plain grahams for the crust and I'm glad I did.

    Very good family recipe

    Tara Fasanella from BERLIN, NJ

    I made these for my boyfriend's birthday and he loved them. Unfortunately, the recipe is too much for just the two of us, so I had to bring some to my mom and brother. Luckily, they were delighted with the treat. Very easy recipe!

    Peanutty Gooey Bars

    Kevin Van Caster from Mesa, AZ

    This recipe produces a very tasty bar cookie, however I did have one problem in that the cookies were too liquid at room temperature, but better after refrigeration. I was wondering if they require refrigeration as the recipe only states to cool completely. Otherwise they end result is a very flavorable bar cookie. I am very happy with the overall results!

    Yummy Gooey Bars

    Tammy Devine from NASHUA, NH

    I tried this recipe because my teenage son loves anything with peanut butter and chocolate. It was a huge hit with him and all his friends too. My husband loved them too! As an interesting alternative I substituted chocolate and mint swirl chips. Wow, they were yummy too!

    Best Bar Cookie!

    Tina Ohman from PALM BAY, FL

    I have been hunting around for a good recipe to add to my Christmas baking list that my sister, who's allergic to nuts, could have. I baked a batch of these and they ROCK!!! I'll be baking many more, and I passed the recipe around the office to all my baking buddies! Easy, fast, and yum-oh!!!

  •  Star(s)

    Excellent and Easy!

    Tina Ohman from PALM BAY, FL

    I was looking for more peanut recipes to use for holiday baking because my sister is allergic to other nuts, and tried these. They are superb and addictive! I'll be making them more often that just for Christmas!!!

    I made these bars for something sweet & salty for a tailgate party and they went over so great that everyone wanted the recipe. I now make it to take to family get togethers and everyone calls to see if I'm bringing them. I have to make a triple batch as they go so fast. keep up the good work.

    Pure Delightful

    Victoria Nelms from JACKSONVILLE, NC

    These treats are pure delightful to make as well as to eat. My friends can't get enough of them when I make them. They will call me up and beg me to make a batch for them to take to company meetings or to family events. My family especially loves when I make them for them. They feel special when I make these treats. As well as they should..because to me they are special enought to make even the most complicated treats. As long as my family enjoys them then I will enjoy making them. And put my heart into each creation.

    Yummy and Easy

    We love this recipe. It is quick and easy! It is one of my favorite treats to make when I'm stressed. My daughter can help - so that makes it twice as nice.

    Peanutty Gooey Bars

    Angela Crowder from SANFORD, NC

    This is a very easy recipe to make and we all enjoyed it. What I like most about it is the salty and sweet mixed in every bite. The graham cracker crust needed more fluid to make it stick together. This recipe wasn't heaven in my mouth but it was very good. This is the reason it got 4 instead of 5 stars.

    Peanutty Gooey Bars

    MELODY LEDGER from BELTON, TX

    Great recipe! I couldn't find the chocolate graham cracker crumbs as the recipe calls for, so I used plain graham cracker crumbs. It tasted great. The bars did not last very long!

    JIM APLIN from ORLANDO, FL

    Every time I make this recipe I have to make a double batch. The reason being the first batch vanishes in about 20 mins. This recipe is as much fun to make as it is to eat.

    These bars are pretty good. They are a little sweet and a little greasy (especially when eaten warm). The flavor is excellent and I am looking forward to making them again for my friends. I liked that they were easy to make, too.

    I made these Peanutty Gooey Bar for a Benefit Auction last week and they were absolutely delicious. They were very easy to make. The combination of peanut butter flavor and chocolate was just enough to satisfy a craving.

    DELICIOUS

    There is really only one word to describe these. AMAZING (i also think there the best when there cooled at room temperature for a few hours, maybe even out of the fridge)

    Party Hi

    Kyle Cunningham from PITTSBURGH, PA

    I served these for a Halloween party and they were a huge hit. I didn't have peanut butter chips when I made them so I drizzled melted peanut butter instead. Everyone loved them! I actually never got to sample one, so I'm not sure I could aptly rate them myself, but judging by how quickly they went I would imagine they are pretty good! Should definitely give them a try.
