I was so disappointed by this recipe. It didn't turn out like the picture at all. Like another review said, make sure you cool the fist layer before adding the peanut butter. I didn't do this and the PB melted and made spreading the top layer a huge mess. The recipe calls for refrigerating the bars, but I did not. To me, a cookie shouldn't be cold. Overall, I am a HUGE Kraft fan and have found all of the recipes I've tried to be easy and taste really good. This one, however, has been the worst and I will not be making it again.
please whatever you do after you bake the first layer cool it down, if you dont the peanut butter will melt and make it VERY difficult if not impossible to spread the rest of the cake mixture on top i put dollops around on top of the peanut butter and smooshed it into it :)
With a couple of alterations (left peanuts out, shaved chocolate instead of chunks, used a light dusting of flour to keep my batter from sliding) This was an instant family favorite! The layers can be tricky, I recommend dividing the ingredients before mixing to preserve the spreadability of the last layer, and cooling bottom layer before adding the P.Butter.
Cant go wrong with any of these ingredients. i will try next time spreading the PB over the warm cake ,then the nuts and choc. Overall easy to make and sure to be gobbled up. I also used walnuts instead of peanuts but like I said-cant go wrong.
Although it did not come close to looking like the picture, it was still a very tasty treat. It's not the easiest recipe to make given that the batter is so thick it is hard to spread. I ended up using my hands to press it out to the edge of the pan. The peanut butter layer was not well defined as the picture shows. The top layer just had to be spooned on in big ended up spreading out so no big problem there. All in all it still tasted good and my family enjoyed it.
too salty..waste of money..followed recipe to the 'T'--throwing it away!
