MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2014

So easy. Perfect for little ones to help with in the kitchen. And they turn out chewy and yummy. Perfect for a weeknight dessert when you have almost no time!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2013

My family loved these. I love them because of their ease and quite affordable. Thanks! I even modified due to ingredients. I had 2/3 stick of butter so I added some vegetable oil to make up the difference, I added just a little more peanut butter and 1/2 tsp baking powder. They were perfect in my opinion.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2013

I made this today for the 1st time and loved it. My company liked it so much she wanted the recipe. The only thing I did differently is , I did not melt the butter. It came out light and brownie like. I melted chocolate chips on top and spread them once softened. I'd make it again!
