I made these to take to a get together with my teenager. Not only did they love them but one parent told me her daughter hated peanut butter but loved these brownies. I basically followed the recipe only I used lite butter and cream cheese and dark chocolate chips. These were great and I came home with an empty dish. 5 stars for taste and ease of making,a great recipe. Thanks for posting.
