I have no idea what I did wrong, I followed the recipe exactly. But it turned out very dark and crumbly (it looked like cooked ground beef), and did not have much of a peanut buttery taste. I used dark brown sugar, so maybe that can account for the dark color?? I am supposed to be taking this to someone tomorrow as a holiday gift, so I'm going to stay up tonight and try another batch. Okay, after the first batch turned out so horrible, I adjusted the recipe some. I used 2 loose cups of brown sugar and added 2 extra tablespoons of milk. I used 1 and 1/3 cup of peanut butter, and took the powdered sugar down to 2 and 1/4 cups. It turned out sooo much better!!!! I would give the adjusted recipe 4 stars :-D
