Since I gave sweets up for Lent I couldn't try these so I have to go by hubby saying they were good, but they were "missing something." He's a big peanut butter/chocolate fan so I guess there just wasn't a "wow factor" here.



Wow, this has to be the best Peanut Butter Cookie Bar recipe I have ever made. You all have got to try this one.



These are too good!! I've made these twice. They are easy, different, and totally delicious. Everyone I've served them to agrees. I use pecans in place of walnuts. I use mini peanut butter cup baking pieces (find next to regular baking chips) and obviously don't chop them. I fold half the bag in with the nuts and press the rest on top as the recipe says. The drizzle is just extra yummy-ness! But I only use 1/2 cup chips, 1 T. butter, and 2 T. peanut butter for the drizzle, and it is plenty. These bars are awesome, thanks for the recipe!
