Living in a Farming community during the Harvest season, I've found that it takes a "Special" type of baking to please the hungry stomaches of our hard working Farmers. The "Farmer's Harvest Bars" were named for this reason. These easy to make Bars, have proven to be a Special Treat for them. Not only are they thick and chewey with a delicate outside crunch..(Just the way "They" like Em!!), they're packed full of sweet, peanut buttery, chocolatey Goodness!! You want to be careful pulling these out of the oven, to a table full of "men"...they may not make it to the table!!! LOL!!!
