Peanut Butter Finger Bars

If you’re not familiar with a Peanut Butter Finger Bar-it’s a homemade take on the Butterfinger candy bar. The homemade version usually has several layers-starting first with a crust-then chocolate and finally peanut butter. These bars have been around for as long as I can remember and they have always been a favorite treat to bring to family gatherings and potlucks.

The standard recipe is pretty basic but I decided to take my basic recipe and turn up the volume a bit. So instead of the basic layers, I added more chocolate, along with a creamy peanut butter frosting that I drizzled over chopped nuts and even MORE chocolate bits!
