These are a great alternative if you are dieting or trying to eat healthy...they were tasty and great for that chocolate/peanut butter craving. I will warn those of you who are not eating healthier or dieting that these are not going to taste like the "real" thing. The frosting is the best, the brownie was a little dry for me, but overall they were worth a try and satisfied my sweet tooth!!
