I was 7 years old the first time I ever tried these bars and fell in love with them at first bite! I forgot about them for many years until about 6 months ago when I stumbled across the recipe on this wonderful website. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I made the bars with much success and they were just as chewy, delicious and peanut buttery as I remembered!
