    yum yum yum

    Deb Hier from CRETE, NE

    Nice looking...

    Laura S from Wisconsin

    It looked nice (i rolled the topping between my hands for a nice sprinkle) and tasted good, but not the best. If the ingredients (oatmeal base and chocolate) sound good to you, try it, otherwise maybe something else.

    Wonderful blending of favorite flavors!

    CAROLYN MALTBY from MADISON HEIGHTS, MI

    This recipe was not only easy to do, it tasted wonderful! Because it has oatmeal AND chocolate AND peanut butter you get to have a great blend of flavors in every bite. I have taken it to several places with me and received rave reviews each time.

    Better than Average

    CONNIE GILL from LIBERAL, KS

    Tried these brownies for a party and I was in shock the number of people who wanted this recipe. Thank God for email.

    Wouldn't make them again.

    Reviewer from Chicago Suburbs, IL

    I tried this despite the previous review because I love peanut butter and chocolate. The bottom layer is very crumbly and falls apart. It tastes dry even though there is 2 sticks of butter in it.

    Not A Big Hit

    Pamela Somers from Brighton, MA

    I try my new recipies on my co-workers and these were not a big hit, especially for the time and amount of ingredients.
