Sue Thomas of Casa Grande, Arizona uses common pantry items to whip up these bars. Peanut butter combines with a cake mix for a tender crust. Then a rich layer of cream cheese is topped with chocolate chips and nuts before baking.
"I've made these bars for more than 40 years, and they're still a favorite," writes Marylou Crouch from Granite Falls, Washington. The recipe makes a small pan, so the two of you can enjoy a few and have some left to share.
With goodies like chocolate, peanuts and caramel peeking out from between golden oat and crumb layers, these bars are very popular. They taste like candy bars but with irresistible homemade goodness.

I love Tiramisu. After tasting Nanaimo Bars at a local bakery, I decided to combine them with the flavors of Tiramisu. My friends and I love my creation and it is more convenient to eat than traditional Tirimisu. —Susan Riley, Allen, Texas
