Peanut Butter Bars
This is a fabulous recipe that I've been making (every now and then) for a few years now. My husband is a HUGE Reese's Peanut Butter fanatic and he LOVES when I whip up a batch of these. These are great for a sweet dessert, to pack and take in a lunch, enjoy as an after school snack, or share at a party! I took a batch of these to an end of the season soccer party for my son once, and a huge tupperware was emptied out very, very quickly.
I've halved the recipe before and fixed in an 8x8 baking dish and that works well for these too. I store these in the refrigerator so they retain their shape and don't get too soft - though they don't usually last long!
