"I made this in a 9.5x13.5 pan and it was just enough I think. I didnt have quick cooking oats so i used instant oatmeal, cinnamon flavor, i figured that would be the least intrusive on the flavors already in this bar. I also used milk chocolate instead of dark and i had no peanuts so i left them out. The bars came out very tasty, almost chewy. wonderful and easy! :)"

"Just made this today, the whole house smelled great when I came home from work! I found the cream of onion soup suprisingly & I used cream of mushroom with roasted garlic (thought it might add a little extra flavor). Added 1 tbl fresh parsley, decreased the chopped onion to 1/2 a cup, added 2 dashes worchestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp more pepper, 1/2 tbl sea salt, onion & garlic powder. I added 1/2 pkg of cream cheese but I dont think it really added anything to the dish.. plus it left little white specks in it (I couldnt get it to melt completely, maybe I should have left it out to soften first). I think next time I'll add more sour cream in place of cream cheese. Overall very tasty, the family liked it, clean plates! :)"

"My son loves anything with chocolate/pb combo so I made these and he went crazy on them! Everyone who tried them loved them. SOOOO easy to make, the only gripe I had is the chocolate topping didnt cut smoothly so it wasn't as neat as the picture but they tasted amazing, so who cares?! lol"

"They were a little sour/bitter for me and i am a lemon fan, I LOVE anything lemon! Of course they looked nothing like the picture, I dont expect that.. however I think I was expecting a more delicate texture and the crust was very tough/chewy. Not bad but not great either, I dont think I'll try again. :("
