Peanut Butter Bars IV

Peanut Butter Bars IV


"This recipe forms a rather stiff dough, you might have to press it in the pan. One time I put raisins in the batter by mistake, and my husband loved them that way. You can also omit the chocolate chips and have them plain if you wish."

These are delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, softening the butter and peanut butter in the microwave before adding the sugars and vanilla. These bars have a chewy, moist consistency, much...

My husband went nuts over these bars! I followed the recipe exactly the first time and he and a friend went through the entire pan in a day and a half. I agree with other reviews that the pean...
