I really tried to like these, I love anything sweet, sorry, these were entirely too sweet. I held out hope someone would eat them, but ended up throwing out most of the pan. What a waste of good peanut butter! I'm sticking with TOH's Creamy Peanut Butter Pie when the family wants something peanut buttery--that's the best peanut butter dessert EVER!!

Originally, this recipe said to cut into 1-inch pieces, which is how you would get 6-1/2 dozen. Upon reviewing it, we agree that is too small for this kind of recipe. The recipe will be updated to cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces, which will yield 3 dozen.Taste of Home Test Kitchen

how can this possibly make 6 1/2 dozen in a 9-inch square pan? that is 78 pieces! If you could manage to cut them without them crumbling into pieces, they'd be smaller than bite-sized.

How does this make 78 servings? 1" squares? The photograph does not show 1" squares.

Very easy to make! It's extremely sweet! I put mine in the freezer so it would mold faster, and it worked!
