This quick gluten-free butterscotch peanut bar tastes like a popular candy bar.

It tasted good however it was too gooey (and I refrigerated it overnight). When I cut them, they were difficult to get out of the pan without oozing apart. I used organic peanut butter so maybe that was the problem...too oily?
Easy to make and so good I made it for my husband's annual family cookie exchange.
I like this adaptation. Never tried putting chocolate on the top before. However, I think you should try it with salted, dry roasted peanuts. I t seems t bring out the flavor of the peatnuts more.
I did like these,but I could't taste ANY butterscotch. They did taste better at room temperature. Right out of the frige, the peanutbutter wasa bit overwhelming. These were well recieved by all!
I love making this recipe! It was so tasty.. I can't wait for my neices and nephew come here to visit. I know that they will simply love it, as I did!!!God bless you all!! Great recipe!!
Not a recipe for a picnic in 95 degree weather! Next time I will chop the peanuts ~ but they tasted great just a little melty
Took previous advice - coarsly chopped peanuts, reduced shortning in topping sauce. They have to be kept cool in AZ before serving. Added coconut flakes to the 'body' of the bar - great flavor! Got requests for the recipe!
Very easy and tasty! A great sweet treat. I use only 1 tsp. of shortening for the glaze. I found 2 tsp. made the chocolate a little too runny.
This turned out very good. Next time I make it though I am going to mix some chocolate in as well instead of just putting it on top.
I use colored marshmallows, and coarsely chop the peanuts.
This is so easy and is a huge crowd pleaser. I almost always have to make a double batch.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
You know the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” right? Well, ice cream is a favorite, but if there is any summertime sweet treat that I find to be scream-worthy , it is, hands down, the s’more. More ...
