  • “This is an excellent recipe. Melt in your mouth. Me_be_Mindy was right. The dough is so good too. My dd’s gobbled them up without breathing.”

  • “Oh my!I made these for the first time today and cheated and tasted a bit of the dough.Had to run next door to give my neighbour a taste.I’m positive that these will be an amazing hit at my Christmas party tomorrow, if they make it that long…”

  • “Love this old kiwi classic. Today I made 2 batches.One with the peanuts and one without the peanuts (for my daughters whom are 4 and under).When Mum first moved to Australia she made up may batches of these to give to all my Kiwi (and some Aussie) friends and always attached a copy of the recipe. Thanks Evie, always a winner.”

  • “These sounded so yummy – but 12-16 biscuits goes nowhere in THIS house, so I doubled the recipe.I now have 57 chocolate peanut brownies!Luckily, they taste wonderful, so I can hand them out all over the neighbourhood! LOLGreat easy recipe.An absolute keeper.NEXT time, I won’t be so @#@%* greedy.”

  • “I have to give these 5* as it the very same recipe I have used for years. My girls used to love them after school with a glass of ice cold milk. Thanks for posting it Evie :)”

  • “This is a wonderful recipe.It makes up in just a few minutes.I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I actually got 25 nice large cookies out of the batch.I love the peanuts as opposed to the pecans that I would normally use.The only thing I will do different next time, is roast the peanuts for a few mintes first.They were fine the way they were, but I like mine peanuts just a little more crunchy.Thanks for the great recipe.”
