These were okay. The picture is false advertising though even if you add cocoa. Read More

I added another 1/2 cup of peanut butter to make it even more "peanut buttery". PLUS I added 1 cup of Chocolate Chips! Tasted like a Peanut Butter cup. Very yummy! Read More

Depending on how "nutty" you want them, and if you decide to go with a chunky/extra chunky peanut butter, you can leave out the loose nuts. If you would rather a non-chunky-nutty brownie, add 1/4 cup of creamy PB and substitute 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for almond extract. Read More

These were good. I ran out of brown sugar and substituted white sugar. I also left out the peanuts and replaced with chocolate chips. I also made this with natural peanut butter. Once the "brownies" cooled I made a quick icing out of melted semi-sweet chocolate more natural peanut butter confectioners' sugar and thinned it with a little milk. I frosted them with this icing and they looked and tasted even better. I am not a huge peanut butter fan but my family and friends are and they really enjoyed these! Read More

Wonderful! I was out of peanuts so I used crunchy peanut butter- as I like peanut butter and chocolate and had a trough (I bought a lot when they wernt on sale after X-mas) of Hershey's Kisses I threw a bunch of those in as well and they were gobbled up! This second time I made them I added the kisses again used smooth peanut butter and tossed in a small bag of chopped pecans. They're in the oven now! Read More
