Chewy Salted Peanut Bars
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
This recipe was okay at best. The crust had an odd, sandy texture and the bars were overwhelming too sweet. You couldn't taste any of the salt on the peanuts.
This recipe is very easy to follow, and received great reviews at church potluck. I did follow the recipe exactly as printed and it worked great. Next time, I will make some substitutions to include swapping out the corn syrup with honey and go with half peanut butter chips and half semi sweet chocolate chips just as a personal taste preference.
Like the other reviewers, I also used the entire package of butterscotch chips. There is no way to cover this using half the package.. Next time, husband said to use half chocolate chips to 1/2 butterscotch chips. Will do. :-)
These bars were so easy to make that the kids could help!! We used honey roasted peanuts because that's what I had on hand. I also added about 1/2 cup of semi - sweet chocolate chips because, well, chocolate. Everyone loves them and we've ate half the pan already!
Very easy to make. I did add extra butterscotch chips because i love them so much!
I found that I had to use a full package of butterscotch morsels. I also doubled the amount of butter and syrup. On my 2nd batch of butterscotch topping, I'd used maple syrup since I didn't have enough corn syrup. Doubling the butterscotch topping worked for me in that I had enough to top the peanuts! delowenstein, TOH Volunteer Field Editor
