These bars are amazing. I mean peanut butter and chocolate are practically meant for each other! They are slightly gooey, with a nice slightly hard chocolate top. They would be too mushy, without the firm chocolate. I love the glaze, which just ups the PB flavor. I made extra glaze and add some to my piece, anytime I have one, LOL. This glaze would be so awesome on brownies or banana muffins...... drool.
