    So Good!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    I make this over and over again. I love it. I have even made it with the chocolate rice cereal! Hubby thinks it a little "too" chocolatey for him [what planet is he from?]. I just made it over the weekend, but will make again for the big Super Bowl Sunday blow-out!

    Easy fun recipe

    Misti King from GRANTS PASS, OR

    This recipe is yummy! My husband loves Peanut Butter so I added a little extra and it was awesome!! I also found a slice to be too much so I did small "crunchy bites" in small cupcake papers! Cant wait for a school party I will be doing these Fun easy treats!

    These are delicious!

    Laura Conrad from ELIZABETH, PA

    Instead of making this recipe into a 10 inch circle, I dropped them from a tablespoon and made an indentation in the top as you would for a thumbprint cookie. Then I put a little chocolate in the center. They didn't last very long when I made them for a party and everyone loved them. I had to give everyone the recipe. This has become a favorite!!

    Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch

    Patricia Starks from Derma, MS

    If you are a chocoholic and a peanut butter lover, you will love this recipe. I could not believe the taste when you realize how easy it is to make. I did make it in an oblong pan to serve smaller portions as it is very rich. It didn't last long enough to tell how it is after the first day. Maybe next time...

    Easy & Simple

    Sue Johnson from ROCHESTER, NY

    I made this last Friday as something quick for friends stopping by.They always laugh at me because they always buy something at the store,but they count on me making homemade.My friends thought I'd baked all day when I put it on the table.It was gone in minutes. I laugh inside when I realize how much fun it is to bake and it turns out just like the picture! It was another great hit! Thanks for sharing this with me.

    yum

    RANDI ALBERTSEN from WOODSTOCK, MD

    Easy to make, and delicious. The chocolatey crunch was a hit at a neighborhood party. Next time, I'm going to try this in a rectangular pan so I can cut smaller servings.

    One Delectable Dessert!

    Cathy Laun from Carle Place, NY

    I have made this recipe multiple times, and I love it, and so does my family. It is so easy to make, and the combination of the chocolate and peanut butter is just perfect. I once made this for my home and careers class and the consensus was unanimous; everyone loved it. This dessert is a big hit with me!

    Wonderful Recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Monica A. from St. Louis, MO

    Very easy and taste better if you use milk chocolate chips & about a 1/4 cup more peanut butter. Guest will love this recipe!!!

    GREAT!

    Kathy Taylor from Buford, GA

    I make these a little differently. I melt the choc and peanut butter, than add 5 cups of cereal, mix together and pour into buttered square pan, Chill and Enjoy. I don't add the additional sugar, it's sweet enough without it. Either way they are very easy to make and better to ENJOY!

    Melanie Donivan from Timmins, ON

    This recipe was a major hit with my whole family. They are buggin' for me to make it again. I think next time i will make it as bars instead of pie shaped. Makes it easier to cut smaller portions.One of the easiest recipes I've made.

    This is the easiest recipe, and the best combination of peanut butter and chocolate since the reeses peanut butter cup. Ingenious idea!!! Great for quick desserts for unexpected guests, and it can be made with ingredients that you have in the kitchen already. This is a favorite in my house!!1

    This is an awesome recipe! My son loved it. I recommend you slice it in very thin portions as it is rich but worth the calories.
