Best ever peanut butter fingers are just what their name says. The best!! I am a little embarrassed to say that I made these for the Fourth of July and between 5 of us we almost finished off the whole pan. 🙂 I did’t know that they would be so darn good.

I had some mini Reese’s left over from my son’s birthday and so I decided to put them into the bars. They were amazing. If you want to be the winner at your next get together, I suggest that you make a batch of Best ever peanut butter fingers. Whatever you do, just do not test them before you take them, or you just might not have any left to take.

I have another peanut butter finger recipe and they were my favorite! But I am pretty sure that these Best ever peanut butter fingers just became my new favorite. We must not tell my oldest daughter about these because peanut butter fingers are her very favorite. And since there aren’t any left, it is just best that we do not tell her that we ever had any. Okay, I do have one left and I guess that I can save it for her.

We also went out on our deck and had lunch today and it was warm. However there was a nice breeze and it made it very nice to eat outside. We had some amazing  shish kabobs. And some delicious salads that I will be posting on the blog in the next few weeks. It was a nice day to spend with 3 of my five kids.

I must say that we are such a blessed people and I am so proud to be an American.  I am so grateful for all the men and women that have sacrificed so much so that we can be doing the many things that we are doing. I am so grateful for them; otherwise, I would not be sitting here right now typing.

I would also not be making such delicious food that we all enjoy and the many freedoms that we all have. Thank you all! And I am also grateful for all my ancestors that they sacrificed so that I could be who and what I am today! God Bless all of you and America! Thank you for your support.
