In the meantime, prepare the peanut butter glaze by whisking together the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, and milk. Add more or less milk to achieve a drizzling consistency.

  1. Hi- the bars taste fantastic, the drizzle makes all the difference. However, mine collapsed in the middle and I have no idea why!! Any ideas?

  2. Yay, a dessert that actually makes a smaller pan size! It’s just my husband and I at home now, and we definitely do not need a big pan of bars in the house, so this is the perfect size. 😉 This looks delicious and I’ll give it a try. Thank you!

  3. These look delicious, Michael. I’m going to add them to my fall baking recipe list!

    Thank you for your hard work and effort. There are people who do appreciate your content!

  4. These look amazing and I look forward to all the sweet spicy recipes, regardless of whether they are brown or any other color!! Indulging in some sweet treats does not make someone unhealthy and I’m so appalled at the rude, thoughtless comment by the poster above. Honestly is it that hard to either leave a kind comment or just move on to a blog that suits ones tastes?!! Keep doing exactly what you enjoy Michael and we’ll follow along and enjoy all of your creative expertise.

  5. My family has loved these for years! I use a combo of chocolate and butterscotch chips and they are delicious! (Who doesn’t love butterscotch and peanut butter?!) I’ve also crushed up holiday M&M candies to make them “fancy” when my kids were little.
