Very tasty! A huge hit! I cut it into bite size pieces to share at a tailgate. I would give it a 5 except there are several steps to it. I spread the peanut butter then dropped the chocolate and nuts. The heated bottom layer helped the peanut butter to spread. And I took balls, flattened in my hand then place on top kind of like a puzzle. I found it easier than pressing on the peanut butter layer.
made this recipe for a fam reunion this past weekend and they were a big hit! next time i am going to use chocolate chips instead of the baker's chocolate. i also recommend warming the peanut butter up just a bit...MUCH easier to spread. with the top layer, i didn't roll out the rest of the cake mix mixture to make and even layer on the top, i just crumbled it over the peanut butter layer and then topped with the chocolate chunks and peanut butter...very easy! i LOVE the peanut butter/chocolate combo!
too hard to spread everything. I don't have the time to roll things out and make sure they fit on top of the peanut butter. the recipe sounded so easy and I see the only way to make it work would be to add multiple steps.
This was a big hit and was easy to make. Can be cut into small squares because it is rich but Oh So GOOD !! I used the semi sweet choc. chips and white choc. chips.
Very rich! But I like the salty/sweet part of it.
These were very tasty, but the layers kind of separated after they were cut. I recommend VERY small cuts for these bars, as they are super duper filling and rich.
These are a yummy treat! I ate one before refrigerating and it was very rich! I had no problems making them. I found that if you dollop the peanut butter like the recipe says right after you get it out of the oven that the peanut butter will melt and will spread very easily. I also flattened out the top layer and placed it on top of the peanut butter. It doesn't have to be perfect. My turned out looking and tasting great. I also used semi sweet chocolate chips!
I'm an experienced baker---but this recipe was a disaster. Poorly written, expensive ingredients, and time consuming all resulted in a mediocre cookie bar. The recipe calls for Baker's chocolate which has to be chopped. This in itself is a time consuming, messy task. It would have been better if the recipe called for "semi-sweet chunks." Trying to spread the peanut butter was a shambles. I made them to serve as a dessert at a cook-out, but I threw them away---My guests expect better from me. And I expect better from Kraft.
I made this for our sewing & golfing group Husbands & wives. They raved over them. It was the best dessert yet. Our two favorite food groups chocolate & peanut butter. YUM!!!!!!!
these are awesome. If you love chocolate you'll love these. Very rich.
