      I did it as is, and it came out good, maybe coz when I microwaved the brown sugar, I melted it but not to the point of being too smooth and syrupy. In fact, I didn't stir it after 30 secs, only after a full minute. It tastes like Reese's but with nuts. Thanks.

      I think there is something wrong with this recipe. I measured everything, and it was nothing but soup. I had to add more powered sugar to get the right consistancy. I wish I would have measured, so the next person to try this would know the right amount to add, I just threw some in. There is too much liquid-- butter, brown sugar, vanilla, peanut butter, and only 3/4 cup poweded sugar??? Also, recipe states-- makes 48 eggs, they would have to be teeny tiny eggs, I made about palm size and only got 10 eggs. However, the end result did taste very good. And my kids loved them. I think they would be very good with milk chocolate also.
