These brownies were outstanding. I couldn't find the new two-chips-in-one bag yet, but I had peanut butter and milk chocolate chips on hand, so mixed the bags and used about 3/4 of the new mixture. These brownies are incredibly rich -- be sure to have a glass of milk nearby! The brownie and creamy PB mixture wants to come apart; perhaps I should have 'scored' the top of the brownie before I spread the second layer on top. Regardless, we all enjoyed these!

I liked these but they didn't blow my mind as the best dessert ever. They are worth making once though since they are easy enough. Like other reviewers said they are super sweet and I can see where the brownie layer may be perceived as dry.

These were delicious and got rave reviews from the family. I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because the cooking times are off and I had to change a couple of things based on other reviews. Since others said that the chocolate brownie part came out dry, I used 1/2 stick (8 tbsp.) of butter instead of 6 tbsp. I also added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to the chocolate brownie batter. I baked the chocolate brownie for only 15 minutes. Then I cooked the peanut butter layer for 10 minutes. I then added 30 reese peanut butter cups (cut into quarters) on top and cooked for an additional 5 minutes. Finally, I melted 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2 tbsp. milk together, and then drizzled on top of the brownies. These are very rich and very crowd-pleasing! Enjoy!

I made this as a birthday treat for a co-worker who loves anything that is chocolate and peanut butter. I ended up sending this recipe to the entire office. These are super wonderful! The chocolate brownie batter will seem very dry when you mix it. That's the way it should be so don't add oil or water or any additional liquid.

I made the above recipe the first time.. I like peanut butter but it tasted a bit too p. buttery for me. Today I made the exact thing just with semi-sweet instead of the mixed chips. I tasted the peanut butter you make with the top layer and LOADS of chocolate on the top and bottom. Today is Thankgiving and we enjoy chocolate desserts better than pie. This would be a hit at a gathering or pot luck. I brought the first batch into work.. I can't wait for them to taste this one. A HUGE HIT!! An instant favorite! YUM!

These brownies were good but not a big hit at Thanksgiving dinner.

I made these to bring to a labor day celebration with my boyfriend's family last fall. This was the first time I was meeting his parents and was hoping to impress them with some awesome brownies (hey, I'm not above using chocolate as a bribe!) His mom is a fantastic cook and I figured if nothing else, I could only hope to make something that was passable but never surpass anything she could make. These brownies were a hit! His family has requested I bring these to several other family gatherings since then. And, his mother asked me for the recipe since his dad and brother could not stop eating them! If this recipe can pass the boyfriend's mother test, then you know its good! I followed other user's tips and cut down the baking time, added some chocolate chips to the brownie batter and scored the brownie layer. I have a huge sweet tooth so I wasn't too careful with measuring the peanut butter and chocolate chips that go on top and threw on a few extra handfuls for good measure. It worked well!

Rich, chewy and creamy!! These were wonderful. I did as another reviewer suggested, and scored the brownie layer before adding on the peanut butter layer...they held together just fine. I also chilled them for an hour or so which made it much easier to cut. Will make again soon.
