"I took this to a party and got rave reviews. I used regular bacon and didn't have any milk so used French Vanilla coconut creamer in the frosting."

"This bar is absolutely sinful! Loved the fudgy texture as well as the ability to distinctly taste all 3 of the main ingredients (pb, bacon and brown sugar). This recipe is one we could become "family famous" for!"

"Is the sugar/flour ratio right?? It was very sweet but the Brown sugar seemed gritty after baking."
