Tara chose this week’s Project Pastry Queen challenge: Sticky Fingers Bars, an over-the-top dessert bar that we’ve come to expect from The Pastry Queen.
We’ve got a cookie base, a sweet Snickers filling, and just for good measure, a layer of peanut butter, peanuts, and chocolate on top. For real. I have no idea how I’ve managed to avoid this recipe for so long!
Since my love for chocolate + peanut butter is one of the worst kept secrets in the world, I didn’t make any real changes to the recipe this week. Knowing that I’d pretty much be baking my very own batch of kryptonite, I stuck to only making a half batch and then scaled the sugar back by 1/3.
Your sweet tooth should bring its A-game for this one. It’s rich. Sweet. Peanuty. Chocolatey. Make sure you save plenty of room for dessert!

And stay tuned next week for the very best Peanut Butter Cookie in the whole wide world!
PS: For the record, Tara, I did a *big* happy dance when I saw your choice 🙂
Why do yours look so much better than mine?! They look perfect!
I swooned over these at Amanda’s site and now I’m swooning again over here! My love for chocolate and peanut butter is also pretty…uh…apparent (i.e. written all over my face) so I’m sure I would adore these!
Wow! These look amazing! Can you ever go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter together? I would have to make these in my sweat pants, so I could just sit down and gorge right away 🙂
Oh wow, these sound fantastic! What a great recipe for everyone to try.
love the way they turned out for you, Shawnda! and you’re right…total kryptonite!
These bars look fantastic! I especially love that Snickers filling. Yum!
these look amazing!!
I feel a cavity forming already
Mmm these look absolutely delicious! Great photos as well. 🙂
I’d be doing a happy dance too! These sound incredible 🙂
