These are the best tasting peanut butter bars- I made these for a wedding shower last summer and they were a great hit.Even the mother of the groom said she liked them- I ran out of printed out copies-with a promise to e-mail the recipe to them.LOL.

Great:
Eagle Brand recipe and photo, the ones I made were the mirror image.
