When I watched this on TV, I really thought Paula used unflavored bread crumbs as part of the peanut butter mixture? Maybe it was graham cracker crumbs.

This recipe is really sugary and sweet! I only used 1 cup instead of 2 cups of powered sugar and felt overwhelm already. My recommendation is to try 1/2 cup for this recipe.
