My husband and I have two sons and I sent these brownies to them regularly when they were in college. They told me that they used to hide a few from their roommates just to make sure there would be some left! —Patsy Burgin, Lebanon, Indiana

"As suggested by another review, I used Pillsbury dark chocolate brownie mix for bottom layer in 9" x 13" pan. After baking and cooling, spread peanut butter topping, using more peanut butter to taste (about 1/4 c. more). Refrigerated overnight. Excellent!"

"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 all time fave brownies when I want something extra. Very impressive for taking to parties/teas/potlucks etc. Always the first to go. Very very rich, so I've found these don't go over well in other countries where sweets are less rich and the chocolate/PB craze is non-existant. However in North America these go down fabulous! Made these over 10 years ago for a high school project where I created a cookbook. I got an A+ (hopefully deserved even if I didn't have these samples!!)"
