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.
