These were soo good! My whole family loved them! But you can only eat a few because they are sooooo rich!

It is easier if you microwave the peanut butter mixture and chocolate chips until melted. Spread peanut butter mixture first, then the chocolate. No baking necessary.

I kind of recommend these. I followed the directions thoroughly and the came out very mushy. The bottom layer would not harden. The were great, however, after they sat in the fridge for a couple hours.
