Although I did follow the recipe right on down, I used some extra chunky peanut butter AND, since these were outrageously sweet (that from someone with a huge sweet tooth!), I cut them so I had 16 brownies! Really enjoyed the PB & chocolate combo! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
