Peanut Butter S'mores Bars
Julie Wischmeier in Brownstown, Indiana says, "I originally whipped up these bars to bring something new and colorful to my Christmas cookie trays. When I give them to my kids’ teachers, they’re gone in a flash! I make them ahead when convenient, then freeze. You can use M&Ms in different colors for holidays year-round."
