I've been making these for years (we call them speedy little devils). A favorite of many. Two things I do differently though: bake for 18 minutes (they are a bit more gooey) and I use more peanut butter (approx 3/4 - 1 cup depending on my mood:). Really when is more peanut butter a bad thing? Read More

Simple to make is about all this recipe has going for it. The result was crumbly and dry and the flavor of chocolate and peanut butter are hidden by overwhelming sweetness. I was disappointed and won't be bringing it to the picnic I'd hoped to share it at. Read More

This was good but I'd recommend using a smaller pan and increasing the peanut butter-marshmallow mixture. Read More

Maybe mine came our PERFECT because I DOUBLED it; used 3/4 butter and used 1 C. PB. I have also used BROWNIE MIX - which is my husband's favorite since it's a little more gooier. I have also tried this with Vanilla mix & lemon pie filling (3/4 can). I have also tried this with Vanilla mix and raspberry pie filling (3/4 can) UMMMM YUMMY! TAKE OUT BEFORE YOU THINK IT'S COOKED ALL THE WAY... that's why it's dry. Read More

I must say these are quite tasty little treats for such a simple 4 ingredient recipe....I was pleasantly surprised! After reading all the reviews I decided to make these into cupcakes to avoid the hassle of trying to spread the filling onto the base in a large cake pan. It worked out very well! Put a tablespoon of the cake mixture down then a spoonful of filling more cake mix on top & pressed down lightly. I baked these for about 14-15 minutes & they were perfect! The kids gobbled them up....my 11 year old son said they were "AMAZING"! Read More

Yummy! Next time I'll put more crumbs on the bottom so the top part of the cookie isn't so thick. Read More

Dry crumbly though the flavor was good. I think I will play with this recipe until it is the consistency I enjoy. More filling less cooking time less crust all possibilities to improve the texture. Read More

These turned out really yummy!! Like the other readers I wasn't sure they would turn out but the cake/butter mix makes a great bar crust. With only 4 ingredients it doesn't get any easier either! I baked them in a little bit smaller dish then 9x13 and the bars were nice and thick. My family yummed them up! Definitely a keeper recipe!!!! Thanks Susan! Read More
