I think I will try this using a boxed brownie mix and putting it in a 9"x13" pan. I will use the same filling ingr. as for a 9" pan. Sounds wonderful! Will let you know how it turns out.

I made this for company and was excited to see how they turned out. The brownie portion was horrible. It tasted like cardboard! The peanut butter topping was delicious and the only saving grace in this brownie. I might try it again, but I'm going to have to do something about the brownie to make it edible!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2011

Made this yesterday for my son-in-law. He loved them. I had to use chocolate chips because I had no unsweetened chocolate so I found them very sweet, but not uneatable. The brownie turned out very well considering I have very little success when making brownies.When all is said and done this is a nice snack. I will make it again but I will use unsweetened chocolate. I give it 5 *****!!!!!!
