These were nice...a lot of chocolate chips! (That's good, I think!) We gave some mix as gifts and made some for us, too. The gifts were pretty, but next time I would rearrange and break up the layers to make it more visually appealing (though it wasn't bad as it is written.)
These were very thick when mixing, but the results were great! We loved the chewy(slightly crisp on edges), biscuit-like texture of these(very different), almost like gourmet cookies. It's hard to eat just one, Yum!
Can anything be better than chocolate and peanut butter! I made these and my family ate them all that day. I plan on giving this to everyone this holiday season.
