So some of our great friends came over for dinner and a movie last night. They brought the drinks and dessert! Which if you had ever had her desserts, you would always request dessert when she asks what should I bring!
Well she surprised us with these yummy bars she had seen on Facebook. We have all seen it I’m sure, thinking I want to try that … but then don’t ever try it. She looked at the recipe and made a few changes from the version online. Lucky for me – oh and my family too since I had to be a good person and share – ha!
She lessened the amount of caramel. Changed it to milk from cream. Added more peanuts. As well as went from milk chocolate to semi-sweet. I believe the original version would have been to sweet for me … what did I just say?!? I have a sweet tooth to beat any sweet tooth and these were perfect!!!
Thanks sweet friends for coming to hang out at our house (with kids) when you had a kid free weekend. (They must really love us! 😉 )
I highly advise you give these yummy bars a try!!!
