Frosted Peanut Butter Fingers

I first learned about these quick crowd-pleasers from a next-door neighbor when I sniffed the delightful aroma of a batch baking. Topped with extra peanut butter and chocolate frosting, the chewy bars became a family favorite that day when she brought us a plateful and shared the recipe. -Leah Gallington Corona, California

    My husband enjoys just about anything with chocolate and peanut butter together. These were easy to make and he really enjoyed them.

    I made these and they were an immediate family favorite! Everyone's been asking me for this recipe! Trust me, they're great! I prefer not to cook them too long to give them a more soft texture.

    Followed recipe as is. Perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate, was quite rich but delicious. Tastes like Reeses-Peanut-Butter cups but without chocolate the whole way around.
