Easy-to-make bars from Margery Richmond in Fort Collins, Colorado are perfect family reunion fare! They hold up in hot weather, stack well and are easy to pick up and eat. With lots of peanuts and butterscotch flavor plus a rich, buttery crust, “Boy, are they good,“ says Margery.
A distinctive peanut sauce complements this colorful combination of tender sirloin strips, cauliflower, carrots, broccoli and mushrooms. I like to dish it up over spaghetti, but you could also use fried noodles.—Janice Fehr,
My manager at work, who knows I like to try new treat recipes, shared this one with me. I've made this chewy and chocolaty fudge many times since. Packed with nuts and caramel, it's like a candy bar. Everyone who's tried it loves it.

Packed with peanuts and gooey with caramel, this do-ahead treat is one sweet dream of a dessert to serve company. With an easy cookie crust and scrumptious candy bar layers, it goes together quickly—and will disappear just as fast! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Cereal and peanuts add the crunch to these sweet and peanut-buttery treats you can whip up in no time. One batch makes plenty for snacking and sharing. At Christmas, my sister and I add them to trays of homemade candies we give to the customers of the house-cleaning service we run. We're often asked for the recipe.
A crust of vanilla wafer crumbs and crushed peanuts provides this cool and creamy dessert with an extra tasty base. It's almost guaranteed that I'll bring home an empty pan when I take it to a potluck.

"Here is a simple snack mix I created on the spur of the moment," writes Barbara Roberts of Middleton, Wisconsin. "It's easy to toss together for a Halloween party or to package in individual bags for a fall bake sale."
