Wow, are these ever good! They taste just like eating a giant peanut butter cup! Scrumptious, and very very rich. In fact they're so rich, you could even cut the squares in half if you want, and get 32 delectable, peanut-buttery rectangles out of one batch. Score!
These bars only take a few minutes to throw together, and not much longer to disappear. Make these for the peanut-butter-lover in your life. Delicious!
