Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bars

Peanut Butter & Strawberry Bars

The flavors of peanut butter and jelly with fresh strawberries makes these bars a favorite snack. The kids love helping with stirring and pressing the base into the pan and slicing strawberries with plastic knives. These are also good with a little chocolate drizzled over the top for extra flavor.
