    After reading other reviews, I made some changes in the way the bars were put together. I had no problem spreading the peanut butter, as it was pretty liquid after microwaving for a minute. As for the top, I buttered my hands and flattened chunks of the dough, then placed it over the ingredients in the pan. Worked perfectly.
