I love peanut butter and chocolate squares and this is the simplest recipe I've found. Be careful not to eat the whole lot in one sitting.
so is it bad that I made these last night and after tasting them I hid them in the back of the fridge hoping no one finds them?? WOW these are good!! Listening to other reviews, I melted the butter and added the sugars to melt (I used splenda brown sugar and xylitol instead of sugar to make them as a sugar free version), used sf hersheys dark chocolate, chunky natural pb for the topping and cut them into brownie size squares so I don't over indulge. SOO GOOD!! - 28 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These were extremely quick and easy to make. I used crunchy PB and semisweet chocolate chips for the topping, and they turned out great. I found that the bottom oaty layer was a tad crunchy though, so if I make them again I think I'll melt the sugars with the butter so that they dissolve, because I didn't really like the undissolved crunchy sugar crystals. The taste was amazing though (the topping is to die for!!!), so maybe I'll try them again with the variation I said. Some of my family refuses to eat them due to the crunchiness...more for me - 31 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very good! They sorta taste like chocolate covered granola bars. My only complaint is that the bars are hard to cut into. Maybe melting the sugar with the butter would help that. - 07 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
