    These are awesome looking! I also could not live without peanut butter. Also add cheese, cream cheese, and bread products to that list.

    Tessa, I LOVE these. I freak out when I’m low on PB, too. It’s never a good thing.

    I love that you eat PB every day. I think I need to have carbs every day. Without it, I just won’t survive!

    Btw, can you send over some of these bars? I need a dessert fix, stat!

    These look so good, I can imagine these sticking to your teeth in that way that peanut does. I found your blog after purchasing your new book, it’s great and I can’t wait to start baking from it 🙂

    I always, Always, ALWAYS must have peanut butter in the house. I buy the large sizes, too, with one for backup in the pantry. It’s an emergency when/if we run out. Bananas are the other thing. It doesn’t matter how many different types of fruit we have, we must have banana too. These bars look fabulous!

    These look great.
    I freak out when I don’t have plenty of pasta and cheese in the house!

    I really love the way these look,- actually quite unassuming and innocent. But-I can imagine they must be one of the most fantastic delicious squares you can ever make. Thanks for the chocaholic, peanut butter lovers’ dream recipe come true!
