Reviews for Layered Chocolate Marshmallow Peanut Butter Brownies
"What an outstanding recipe! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us, but we went through them so quickly that I wished I would've made a whole batch! I can't wait to make them again!"
"So tasty! A little time consuming, but completely worth the wait!"
"Very good brownies, had to try them, when I saw it called for large marshmallows in the frosting."
"OMG! These brownies are fabulous. What a hit at my cookout."
"These are the absolute best brownies I've ever tasted! People constantly request them when I'm asked to make a dessert. Oftentimes I make 1.5 times the frosting because it's so delicious."
"No matter where I take these I always come home with an empty pan! I find it easier to spread the peanut butter on the brownie layer when they're cool because the pan's so full."
"I have been making these for several years. My granddaughter has requested them the past 2 yrs for her birthday."
"A friend of mine at work made these for my birthday and they were a big hit - everyone wanted the recipe! Such good flavor! Thanks for the recipe!!"
