Old School Peanut Butter Bars

These peanut butter bars are astoundingly addictive. There isn’t much else to say about them.  Words cannot do them justice.  They aren’t like the Reeses type Peanut Butter Bars.  Oh no.  These bars have a moist, chewy cookie crust, and are then smothered with peanut butter and chocolate frosting.
