I have made this recipe a few times. My son-in-laws both love these. They tell me not to make sweets but they devour these when I put them on the table. Even my coworkers love these bars and they are so easy to make.

First off- I think if someone put peanut butter on a bumper I would eat it- so I had to try this and it didn't disapoint. I had to substitute a chocolate pudding mix for the vanilla. (Peanut butter alone is GOOD but you put peanut butter with chocolate and I am in heaven!) any way the substitution worked and the bars turned out great. Note at end of recipe says they freeze well--well I don't know about that-I'll have to make them again I guess.

Sooo good!!
