The peanut butter frosting is to die for. Most of the sweetness comes from the frosting which balances out with the brownie which is relatively unsweet. Only downside for me was the brownie was a bit dry.

The peanut butter topping is amazing! It tastes like peanut butter whipped cream. However, I didn't love the brownie. I don't like it baked in the jelly roll pan. It only took 20 minutes to bake and the outside edges had to be cut off because they were so hard. I lined the pan with parchment paper, which made them easy to remove from the pan. I think I'll bake the brownie in a normal rectangle cake pan next time.

These bars taste very good, but the pan does need to be sprayed with oil. I had to throw away half of these cookies because they would not come out of the pan. I used margerine to melt the chocolate chips and at least a tablespoon is required for drizzling versus the teaspoon as directed in the recipe.

I MADE THESE FOR A PARTY I ATTENDED AND EVERYONE WANTED TO KNOW WHO MADE THEM. THEY WENT LIKE HOT CAKE'S. I'M SORRY I DIDN'T GET TO TRY THEM BUT I WILL THE NEXT TIME I MAKE THEM WHICH WILL BE VERY SOON.

This seems very difficult to get out of the pan whether you grease the pan or not. I've tried it both ways and have had problems.

The brownies were fudgy and decadent, and the peanut butter flavor wasn't too overpowering. This is definitely one recipe I'll keep on hand!

Probably use 1/2 as much of the icing as is recommended. I was told it was way too thick.
