Super yummy, and I got the comment a lot that it almost had a butterscotch taste to it. I also discovered it's delicious with pretzels hehe. I used Simply Jiff (lower sugar amounts) and it still was pretty sweet. Since I made some chocolate fudge (15304) I had to try them together and it was amazing. Oh and mixing in my lumpy confectioner's sugar was a pain in the butt. Maybe I should have sifted it first, because I had to use our little manual hand mixer to get it to mix in all the way. I hope no one else runs into that haha. It was worth it tho. Thanks for sharing :)
YUM!!! I switched the brown sugar to 2 cups and upped the peanut butter to 1 full cup like others suggested. I felt like this came out a little dry-but I think that it was my fault. I wasn't paying allot of attention to the time after it started boiling. Hubby and my 14yr old son had the pan eaten in less then a day and are asking for more already!
YUMMO! This is a great recipe! I love it! Very smooth and delish. I did use 2 c brown sugar, a scant cup of PB, 3 c of powd sugar then I added 1/2 pkg butterscotch chips. YUM!
