few combinations are as good as peanut butter and chocolate... and this is a great one. the dough isn't too sweet, giving you a good salty hit with the peanut butter. easy to make. next time, i will put all the dough in the bottom and sprinkle roasted peanuts on top. :-)

I followed this recipe like it was the bible (as usual) and I found it worked out really well. Alot of these ingredients are things I have sitting around becoming useless so it was nice to use them up. Just so you know, I suggest putting them in the fridge for atleast 2 hours or the freezer for 30 min or more to let the chocolate set. Plan ahead if you are hoping to serve these as a dessert.

Pretty tasty. went together without too much trouble - I did ad about another 1/3 cup melted chocolate chips to help finish off the edges. Don't expect them to be around long once the roomates see they're out... Subbed in reduced fat PB, didn't seem to cause a problem.
