Chewy Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe combines three of my favorite foods—peanut butter, coconut and chocolate—into one mouthwatering dessert. It's very rich and filling, so a small piece usually satisfies even a real sweet tooth.—Mrs. Sanford Wickham, Holbrook, Nebraska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2014

I recall making these bars and I'd added 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats and increased the amount of semi-sweet chocolate chips to 1 cup, plus I added 1/8 cup all-purpose flour! I greased and floured a 13x9x2" baking pan. I recall keeping the baking time at 15 minutes for

the crust and 15 to 20 minutes for the bars. This is another recipe which has been a tasty addition to the TOH recipes I've used! Thank you for sharing your recipe! delowenstein

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2012

Flavor seemed ok, but I baked it for over an hour and it never cooked all the way through...although the top got really REALLY brown. Yuck.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 27, 2009

I substituted Reese's baking pieces for the chocolate chips. They turned out great! The bars are thin so if you like a thicker crust I would recommend doubling the crust ingredients.
