"Made these bars for a housewarming party, they were very rich but went over very well. I wish I had doubled the peanut butter layer, made a very thin layer. Would make these again!"

"I made homemade brownies and homemade frosting, but added this peanut butter frosting in between. Awesome flavor!! I will double the frosting next time as the level of peanut butter frosting was pretty sparse. Delicious!"
