Peanut Butter Bars and what to be for Halloween?!

Yesterday I posted about our weekend in the big city (last weekend), and mention I made these awesome Peanut Butter Bars that I found here (again, thank you Mandy over at Sugar Bee Craft Edition for sharing these lovely, yummy, delish treats with us).  They are really simple, and oh.my.gosh. to die for!  It's like a glorified Peanut Butter cookie, you know the ones that have the Hersheys Kisses on the top?!  Yeah...that's what I'm talking about!


Ingredients (not including the ingredients for the topping)

It's Friday and I still haven't a clue what to dress up as for Halloween.  Last year I was a hippie, and of
course it was a friends costume, so I can't be that again.  Oh and Bernie will be a Skeleton like he has been the last 2 years!

The year before I was a "devil", but the dress is a little skimpy (if I only had black tights/leggings).  (No picture of this...sorry!)
Saturday night there is a band playing at one of the local bars, so I'm pretty sure that's where we'll be!  I'll be posting next week to show you what I decided to be!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!
