  1. 5 stars
    I made this for my brother when he came to visit and he absolutely loved them! Thank you for the recipe

  2. These are so delicious 😋 I love the peanut butter and chocolate combo. Thanks so much for the recipe 😊

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe, thank you so much for sharing. Anyone having a problem melting their chocolates chips should try buying the mini chocolate chips, they melt super fast.

    1. Thanks so much! They do melt easily and I also find that some brands do better than others due to varying amounts of the stabilizer used to help the chocolate keep it’s shape while baking.

  4. This took less than 5 minutes to make! Whaaaat?! So good. I used crunchy peanut butter for even more texture. Deeeelish

  5. Before I try to make these, the instructions say to use an 8×8 pan and
    it says: Author: Melissa Sperka
    Serves: 48

    Does an 8×8 pan serve 48? How big are the pieces?
    The picture you show in your cookbook, looks like
    30 pieces…just wondering if you double the recipe and
    use a 9×13 pan. Thank You!

    1. You cut these into 48 (1-inch) pieces. This recipe is a review I did for another Authors cookbook. If you want to cut it into bigger pieces, you can. Serves 48 and 48 servings are two different things. And yes, you could do a double batch, sure.
