    So, how long at 350 degrees do you cook these?

  2. Susan Herlan says:

    How long do you bake? sounds yummy and would love to make.

  3. Lauren & Susan,
    I use this exact same recipe and mine says to bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.

    This recipe has been in our family for many years. The bars are delicious, and a favorite of so many people!

  4. Susan Herlan says:

    oops, never mind I see the 20 minutes bake time now.

    Not a fan of nuts or coconut so I will have to come up with a chocolate-peanut butter bar. Love peanut butter.

    • Frugal Mom,
      Here’s a yummy (and awesome) recipe for peanut butter bars.

      2 cups crushed graham crackers
      3 cups powdered sugar
      1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
      2 sticks melted butter
      Mix all ingredients together and pat into a 9×13 pan. Melt one (12 oz.) pkg. of chocolate chips and spread over top.
      You can use any flavor chocolate chips.

    • ooops! I meant “yummy (and easy)”!

  25. I use walnuts in my 7 layer bars! Yum!

  26. Brenda Gaines says:

    this is great and sounds good, never had them before

  27. Thanks for sharing this one, I an gonna try it. Sounds easy and I think it will please the family.

  28. Georgette says:

    We love these! Haven’t made them in awhile — thanks for reminding me:)

  29. not sure how long to bake but, sounds great.

    • Vickie,
      If you’re referring to the Peanut Butter bars recipe that I posted, you do not bake them. Some people think they taste similar to a Reese’s peanut butter cup. I think they just taste great, regardless!

  30. These sound wonderful, although if I wanted to share them with my husband I would have to omit the coconut.

  31. Yummmmy! This looks great

  32. Mmmm these sound good, minus the coconut.

  33. Yum! Can I have a bite right now? Those look good!

  34. these look yummy. Must go check my cupboards for ingredients now…

  35. It looks so yummy. Hope I have all ingredients.

  36. Made these tonight! They are fantastic!

  37. I’ve made these and they’re a family favorite. My recipe didn’t use the nuts, though, so I’ll definitely be copying this one. :-)

  39. Tracy Eubanks says:

  40. This sounds so good!

  41. these look so good would have to omit the coconut though because my son is allergic to it

  42. Sharon McCartney says:

    Love making these! They are so easy & so delisious!!!

  43. these look so tasty and I bet fattening. Pecans add a little healthy twist to it
