  • “Yum!I made these and served with whipped cream on top, which balanced out the peanut butter flavor.This is a very rich brownie.”

  • “WOW, these are decadent.You could probably cut them a lot smaller than 24 to a pan.And they weigh a ton.I made them for a bake sale, and two brownies to a bag was super heavy compared to my other brownies.Great flavor.I used about half a can of frosting, and frosted them warm so it melted evenly across the top just to make them look pretty as I’m not a huge frosting fan.But you definitely need to frost them as they look goofy if you don’t”

  • “YUMMY!I made my own brownies and then made recipe #89207 for the chocolate frosting part.Delish!!Lots of peanut butter taste!Thank you for sharing!”

  • “This is a wonderful, extremely rich recipe!As I was assembling the ingredients I realized – no chocolate frosting, so I made a quick chocolate sour cream frosting that worked out just great!My only caution – the cook time was a little short, I would give it a good 5 minutes more.Mine were a bit underdone in the center.Overall, delicious!”

  • “In some brownie/peanut butter combinations, the peanut butter is not very prominent.In this recipe, the peanut butter really stands out.So, you must be a real peanut butter lover to enjoy these brownies.They are extremely moist and very rich. Thanks for a keeper, Caryn! “
