These chewy peanut butter chocolate bars are the perfect no-fuss contribution to a potluck or bake sale. I've discovered the trick is to get them into the refrigerator to set up before they disappear! —Lorri Speer, Centralia, Washington

Test Kitchen Tips
  • If you're looking to cut some sugar, feel free to substitute regular peanut butter for all natural.
  • Corn syrup is an invert sugar, meaning it is liquid in its natural state. This quality helps it stop sugar crystals from forming in frostings, candies and other sweet recipes.
