Reviews forPeanut Butter Brownies
"I have never tasted such a dry brownie in my life...I think cardboard has more moisture than this recipe. Will not be making these again!"
"Taste fine and are moist but they are more cake-like than brownie. Not ewy gooey like i like my brownies. Wont be making these again."
"These were absolutely fabulous! I felt like baking something yesterday, and I was going to do peanut butter cookies. I was out of brown sugar but had cocoa, so I came upon these in my recipe search. Moist and delicious! I made them exactly like the recipe and will make them again and again! Planning on taking to a new mom later this week. I wonder what these would be like with a hazelnut spread instead of the peanut butter? Thinking of trying them that way."
"I adjusted these for high altitude and they turned out PERFECT! Best brownies I have made since living 7200 ft above sea level.Adjustments I used:1 Tbs of water1/4 tsp decrease in baking powder2 Tbs decrease in sugar"
