I used crunchy peanut butter, substituted 1/3 cup cocoa powder for half of the flour and chocolate chips for the peanuts, and reduced baking powder to about 1/4 tsp. They got devoured...

These were okay. The picture is false advertising though, even if you add cocoa.

I added another 1/2 cup of peanut butter to make it even more "peanut buttery". PLUS, I added 1 cup of Chocolate Chips! Tasted like a Peanut Butter cup. Very yummy!

Followed the directions exactly and they turned out great! Definately a keeper! I did add 2 tbsp of cocoa to give it a little chocolately flavor, just right!

Depending on how "nutty" you want them, and if you decide to go with a chunky/extra chunky peanut butter, you can leave out the loose nuts. If you would rather a non-chunky-nutty brownie, add 1/4 cup of creamy PB and substitute 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for almond extract.

I quadrupled the recipe for a party and added 1/3 cup of cocoa powder and 3/4 cup of sugar and it made the most awesome brownies I and everyone I know have ever tried :)

These were good. I ran out of brown sugar and substituted white sugar. I also left out the peanuts and replaced with chocolate chips. I also made this with natural peanut butter. Once the "brownies" cooled, I made a quick icing out of melted semi-sweet chocolate, more natural peanut butter, confectioners' sugar and thinned it with a little milk. I frosted them with this icing, and they looked and tasted even better. I am not a huge peanut butter fan, but my family and friends are, and they really enjoyed these!

Had to cook it for 35 minutes and it turned out great.
