Would make this again.
These were so easy to make and were delicious. I skipped the peanuts and added melted chocolate for the topping. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I made this for a group event and EVERYONE loved these bars. They were very easy to make and tasted wonderful. I actually cut the bar recipe in half (not the topping)and baked in a 9x13" pan. 5 stars

Would make this again.
The entire family loved this one! I have made it twice since Christmas, everyone keeps requesting them again. I use 1 cup Heath Bits instead of chopping the bars. 5 stars
