I like to bring these rich goodies to parties or my husband's workplace," says Julie Tambrini of Lansing, Illinois. "The combination of gooey chocolate caramel and a crumbly topping makes them irresistible."
A co-worker's mother gave me this gem of a recipe a few years back. I can never decide what's more appealing—the attractive look of the bars or their incredible aroma while they're baking! Everyone who tries these asks for the recipe.
“These are so easy to make and take no time at all. They’re great to package up for those college kids looking for something from home. Everyone will want this recipe." —Elaine Grimme, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
"I made this dessert for eight ladies who recently stayed at our bed-and-breakfast, and they just raved about it," reports Mary Ann Meredith of Pittsford, Michigan. An oat crust is topped with chocolate and peanut butter, then sprinkled with crushed toffee candy bars.
In the summer, we often have weekend guests who go boating with us. These sweet, chewy bars are the perfect treat to take along. Since I can use my microwave to prepare a batch, I don't have to heat up the oven--and my kitchen.
