"Hubby and I decided to have a treat last night while watching movies. He is a Reese's fan, and you would think that he would have had his fill with all of the peanut butter eggs he recently ate for Easter. Nope; LOL. I am not an experienced baker and had trouble getting the layers to spread evenly. In fact, at one point, Hubby found me swearing at the pan. He thinks that my frustrations were worth it, though. The peanut butter layer makes the brownies lighter, and more cake-like. While I like a dense, chewy, and chocolatey brownie, he was very happy with the results. I did use my mixer to blend the peanut butter layer, as I had trouble getting the butter to incorporate by hand. My tip for spreading the batter layers is to drop it by spoonfuls across the top and then blur together. Big blobs just make it difficult to spread wet ingredients on top of wet ingredients."
"Made these tonight = yummy! As far as the pb mixture, I also added it with spoonfuls and then swirled the globs together - worked like a charm.Thanks for sharing a great recipe that I know I will turn to again and again, busy mom!"
"These were good. I found that if you try to spread the peanut butter mixture around, it doesn't work very well. Instead, if you just drop it by small spoonfuls, there is enough of it to cover the bottom layer. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Woohoo! I was looking for a peanut butter brownie recipe that used a brownie mix and this one was perfect! I wanted something quick and this was. I dropped the peanut butter in globs and spread as another chef suggested and didn't have any problems spreading it. The end results were a delicious brownie that was chewy and cake like from the peanut butter and together made an excellent taste. My boys simply inhaled these, and have requested them again. Thanks for posting, this was great!"
"This brownie is definitely cakier than I usually prefer as I am a fudgey brownie fan, but they were very good and everyone at the party I brought them to loved them. I didn't realized that you were supposed to beat the peanut butter and margarine first before adding the flour and sugar, and I had thrown everything all of that stuff in at the same time. However, it blended fine and tasted fine so I went ahead with the recipe and it came out fine."
"These are indeed delicious! For an even more intense chocolaty flavor, add 1 tbsp of instant coffee and 1/2 of mini-chocolate chips to the brownie batter. You may have to bake them 5-8 minutes longer- but so worth the wait!"
"Very easy, very yummy. The PB layer is similar consistency to the brownie layer - cake like, moist."
"Made these for my grandkids and they turned out delicious! Only difference is that I had to cook them about 5 minutes longer than recipe calls for because they were not done in the middle."
