If you're a fan of peanut butter cups, you'll enjoy these two-layer treats. A slightly crunchy graham cracker and peanut butter layer is topped with a smooth coating of melted chocolate chips and peanut butter. Yum! -Nicole Trudell Fort Langley, British Columbia

"I love Taste of Home. I can always find my family's old favs here. My Gramma used to bake this recipe in the oven for a few minutes. No microwave. :)"

"I made these bars, and the flavor is good. But, I am having a problem melting my chocolate chips. I used the microwave and stirred the chocolate, peanut butter, and margarine after every 15 seconds of heating. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?"

"I love these! I have made these for several gatherings and every time I get so many compliments. I have had a lot of requests to bring these for other gatherings. People love them, they always say that they taste like Reese's! They are pretty easy to make and don't take a whole lot of time. I love that I don't have to even turn on the oven. When you cut them you just have to do it slowly because sometimes they will shatter or split."
