Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were excellent bars. These were excellent bars. For those that have a difficult time to spreading the layers, melt the peanute butter in the microwave for a few seconds so you can "pour" it over the first layer insteady of spreading. For the top layer, just drop clumps of the dough using your hands or two spoons over the peanut butter so most of the surface is covered - no need to spread it; it comes out fine after baking and spreads out by itself the rest of the way. I think the pudding was not required due to the amount of sugar already in the cake but rather just to use more Kraft products. <<< Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Lori ~ Thank you for your comments. The pudding is added to the cake mix to yield a moister cake and it also enhances the flavor of the cake. >>>

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After reading other reviews, I made some changes in the way the bars were put together. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super good. Super good. I would recommend using chocolate chips instead of the baker's chocolate--a lot easier b/c you don't have to chop up the chocolate and less mess to clean up!!
