Reviews for Salted Peanut Bars
"Everyone loved these! They are pretty hard to cut when you first take them out of the refrigerator. I let them sit out for about a half an hour and then cut them into the bars. Excellent recipe!!!!!"
"Very good alternative to traditional Rice Krispy treats."
"These are delicious - a bit hit at my son-in-law's B-day party."
"Keeper recipe, I'm not a big marshmallow person but, these are truly delicious. I have made them twice now, the last time I added a few chocolate chips to the top after I spread the peanut butter mixture on."
"Keeper recipe, similar to brownie mallow bars on this site-which I have made a million times. Love the peanutty, salty, sweet, crunchy, gooey flavor-like an upscale fluffernutter. Keeps well in the fridge, easy to take along. Thumbs up from everyone that tried them."
