Peanut Butter Gooey Crunch Bars

Print Friendly and PDF

I almost didn't post these monsters. They were just so ugly.

Delicious, but so ugly.

They got such rave reviews though that I couldn't resist, so here we are.

Even worse than trying to photograph these was trying to name them. "Peanut Butter Cookie Blondies with Gooey Marshmallows and Chocolate Butterscotch Crunch Topping" was simply too long. After I had typed a hundred alternatives (including "Peanut Butter Ugly Bars", "Mystery Bars", and finally just "DUMB") I got mad, slammed my computer shut, proclaimed that I was never blogging again and completely forgot about them until today.

So this morning I calmly sat down, deleted the non-descriptive title I had typed in caps lock in my rage, and called them "Peanut Butter Gooey Crunch Bars".

Seriously, these are fabulous, despite all my ranting and raging. If you remember the Marshmallow Krispie Brownies of '12, they may seem familiar. Basically they're just the peanut butter version of those. Make them. Love them. Good day.
