Expert Tips

  • The secret for cutting bars easily is to line the pan with heavy-duty or non-stick foil. When it is time to cut the bars, just lift the baked bars with the foil out of the pan, and cut. This also makes cleanup extra easy.
  • If you are a chocolate lover, try using 1/2 cup chocolate chips in place of 1/2 cup of the peanuts.
