  • “Such a cool recipe.It was so easy to make and the turned out really nice looking.I was told that even the edges that I cut off and had dried out a bit were wonderful.Thanks for posting a neat recipe…they’ll make my friend’s birthday special.”

  • “These brownies were so delicious!!!!! I did not add the peanutbutter chips and i added crushed up hershey kisses instead of chocolate chips and they turned out so nice and fluffy and wonderful. They were all eaten within the hour :)”

  • “Yum! Made these vegan by substituting vegan butter, egg, and milk replacements..also used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. I only have an 8×8 pan so I used that and increased the baking time to 40 minutes – they seemed done but then were still really raw in the middle. Not a huge deal since there were no eggs but next time I will cook longer. Thanks!”

  • “Yummy!I didn’t put in the chocolate chips or peanut butter chips because I didn’t have them and I think it would have been too sweet for my taste with those anyway.I might use less sugar next time and add vanilla per a previous reviewer.Chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite flavor combo.These are delish.I think they are now our official signature brownie. Thanks! :)”

  • “I made this for two events,” Cooking From The Pantry ” in the Canning/Dehydrating Forum and ” Flours and Romance ” in the Food Photo Forums.Except for adding 1 teaspoon of vanilla to the batter,the recipe was made as it was written. Since my SO and I like a thicker brownie, I used an 8 x 8 inch pan. And since a smaller pan was used,about more minutes was added on to the baking time. Both my SO and myself really enjoyed the taste of this brownie. 🙂 For all of you who likes a peanut butter/chocolate combo,this is a recipe you should try. I’m sure going to make this one again. Thanks for posting and, ” Keep Smiling 🙂 “”

  • “I made this recipe and doubled for a larger batch and they were great- huge hit for game night. a few days later, I adjusted the recipe to make peanut butter brownies without the chocolate and they were even better! great recipe!”

  • “I am a huge fan of the peanut butter and chocolate combination, and while these were good, they weren’t as incredible as I’d hoped they would be. I will be using a different peanut butter brownie recipe as my go-to recipe.”

  • “I had a jewelry party and served a brownie bar. Made five different kinds of brownies and these were one of the favorites. They were easy to make and very pretty. Didn’t get done in 25-30 minutes in my oven-still jiggly when I had guests walking in the door so I stuck them in the microwave for a few minutes on med-high power and they were perfect! Thanks, Kim”

  • “WOW these are a winner!I made these among other things for Thanksgiving dessert and they were a huge hit.I increased everything by one half and used a 9×13 glass baking pan.Perfect amount. They are so good.I think I had to bake them for about 45 minutes or maybe a little less.I put a lot more chocolate chips and pb chips and more peanut butter as well.These are just to die for.Pretty and fun to make.”

  • “Yummy!! My husband is a big fan of peanut butter and chocolate and he really enjoyed these. I didn’t put icing on these when they first came out of the oven and they were half gone before I knew it! At that point I didn’t bother, they are really good as is. Thanks for posting this, it’s excellent!”

  • “Reese’s peanut butter cups in brownie form! I was quite liberal with the peanut butter and chips measurements and light on the cooking time to get fudgy, almost gooey brownies, just the way we like them.”

  • “These were delicious! I loved the peanut butter parts the best. I might try an all PB brownie next time…”

  • “I didn’t cut anything down on my recipe and they came out fine.I used chunky peanut butter for the crunch and also added more in the mix, about 1 cup.We will have again, and according to the grandkids, it will be soon!”

  • “I also reduced the cocoa to 1/4 C. & chocolate chips to 1/3 C. It came out quite good, very moist! Though I did have to bake it for about 40 min.”

  • “I really wish I had never made these ;-( I can’t stop eating them! Only change I made was omitting the choc chips and peanut butter chips b/c I had none on hand. DELICIOUS! Will make again. I think they’d be great as butterscotch swirl as well.Thanks for a keeper!”

  • “made these yesterday, and they are gone…making another batchthanks for sharing”

  • “Loved these! Easy, moist and super flavorfull! I did take advice from a reviewer about chocolate being overpowering and cut the amount of cocoa to 1/4 cup and chocolate chips down to 1/3cup. Really nice and fun to make!”

  • “Sorry but we thought the chocolate was overpowering.Did enjoy the peanut butter flavor.Thanks for posting.”

  • “Excellent brownies! Everyone in the family loved these. I don’t eat much sweet stuff and yet these where great, I even enjoyed them! They went quick! Thanks a whole bunch for posting Kim D…..”
