MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2014

"These are very good and easy to make. I added a heaping 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Mine only needed to bake for 18 minutes and have stayed soft. Next time I might try subbing applesauce for some of the butter."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2014

"Two stars because I expected a lot more from these bars after seeing all the 5 star ratings. Very bland and disappointing. I won't make them again. Must get 5 stars from people who never made a good peanut butter bar recipe and find these to be so good. I'll keep searching for a flavorful peanut butter bar recipe!"

"I made these bars a couple days ago and they are gone and that's with just 2 people eating on them! I added in white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and toffee bits and they were so dang good and addictive! I have saved this recipe and will be making these forever more. Thank you for this delicious recipe!"
