I was a little nervous making these b/c the previous review was not too positive. There seemed to be a lot of graham cracker crumbs so I cut it down to 2-2 1/2 cups. I also ran out of peanut butter so I only added 1/2 cup to the chocolate layer. I did increase the chocolate chips a bit on top to balance the peanut butter base. It actually turned out pretty darn GOOD! My kids looked like they had died and gone to heaven when I served them. My husband thought they were way too rich to be brownie-sized. I just cut them into 1 1/2 inch squares (no bigger) and they are great small pieces of heaven-(if you are into peanut butter and chocolate like I am). I'd totally make this again! Read More

I love chocolate and peanut butter and I love simple but it must have been the graham cracker crumbs-they made me feel like I was eating something with whole wheat in them. Now I'm not opposed to whole wheat but I wasn't looking for "healthy" if you know what I mean! They were okay but I would probably never make them again. Bummer! Read More

I was looking for something with more peanut butter taste. These are ok for what they are. The graham cracker crumbs do make them a bit gritty. Read More

These were easy and tasty but a bit too heavy and rich almost more like fudge than bars. Where I'm living graham crackers can't be found so I substituted chocolate cookies. The cookies had chocolate chips in them and I think that made the base softer and wetter than it should have been. If I make this recipe again I'll use plain cookies to balance out the strong sweet flavor of the chocolate peanut butter top layer. Read More

I took these to a New Year's Eve party and they were a hit! My chocoholic friends couldn't get enough of them! They are VERY rich so next time I will cut them a bit smaller. Next year they'll be in my Christmas cookie line up! Read More

This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I have not made any alterations to the recipe and they are always a huge hit! The first few times I made these I bought graham crackers and crushed them myself but I recently switched to the graham cracker crumbs found in the baking section and it makes things even easier. These bars never last long and are always a hit! Read More
