OH! I have a recipe VERY similar to this, except that it uses peanut butter and not peanut butter chips. We call them payday bars. I love them. If you haven't made this, you really need to try, because you'll love it.

This looks very interesting! I'll have to give it a try. I'm curious to see how the pudding mix tastes in this.
