“These peanut butter bars taste just like peanut butter cups.” - by Nancy
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan

- In a metal bowl over simmering water, or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the peanut butter, stirring occasionally until smooth. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate for at least one hour before cutting into squares.

"Kids said that these are better than Reese's! Very tasty. Has anyone tried using just 1 stick of butter successfully? I'll let you know if it works! UPDATE: I made these with 1 1/2 sticks of butter wi..." See moreth equally delicious results. I will update again trying 1 stick...UPDATE #2: Okay, I tried one stick of butter - the taste is still delicious! The only difference is that the peanut butter part is a little more crumbly...doesn't hold together quite as well...so you decide how much butter you want to use!"

SO easy, SO fast and terrific for satisfying those cr..." See moreavings.

"These were great! I was a little worried because I used natural peanut butter and the bottom layer was really runny when I put it in the pan. I am glad I kept them refrigerated because they do softe..." See moren quickly at room temperature but all in all, they turned out great. Everyone who tried them loved them and my friend wanted the recipe. I had hoped to find a review saying they work even with natural peanut butter but couldn't find one, so now you know! I'm sure they are firmer with regular peanut butter but I'll save myself the hydrogenated oil! UPDATE: This has become a staple in our house as well as many of our friends. I still prefer natural peanut butter, and I've found Skippy Natural works the best, but you can do with other kinds like Laura Scudders, etc. Just keep them in the fridge!"
