Are you making this? 
1 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp table salt
1/4 lb butter (2 sticks); salted
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 packages cream cheese; softened
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1/3 cup peanut butter
3 Tbs all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy (whipping) cream
4 ounces Good Quality Bittersweet Chocolate
1/2-1 cup peanuts to sprinkle on top

Original recipe makes 24 Servings




1 Pre-heat oven to 350 degress

2 Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl.

3 Mix butter until creamy, then add brown sugar beating until fluffy. Add peanut butter and mix, then add the egg and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix.

4 Place dough into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan, flattening to cover the entire surface.

5 Bake for approximately 10 minutes until firm, but not fully baked.


1 While the crust is baking, mix cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter and flour together until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, then milk mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared crust. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, then turn the temperature to 250 and bake for 35- 40 minutes longer. The top should be firm but not brown, with a little jiggle in the center (not much though). Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.


1 In a microwave safe bowl, heat the cream to just below boiling, about 1 minute. Add the chocolate and stir gently until melted and smooth. Drizzle over the top of the bars.

2 Refrigerate for several hours to overnight, then slice into small squares (it is very rich).

This isn't so much a review but a question...when will this recipe be edited so it's correct? I thought all recipes were reviewed for accuracy. Is it typical to have inaccurate information published?
