- Use roasted and salted peanuts for a sweet and salty candy bar. I used cocktail peanuts for half the recipe and dry roasted for the other half. Both worked well.
- If you make these into 6 bars, they are jumbo sized. I prefer them smaller, so I ended up making them into 12.
- Store in the freezer for the best consistency.
These peanut bars are really easy to make. It's waiting for them to set in the freezer that's the hard part!
