  1. I just made this tonight. I would NOT add 1 tbsp of margargine to the chocolate chips "to make it creamier" as one poster mentioned. When I did this all of my melted chips SOLIDFIED into one big blob and would not move! When I tried to remelt in the microwave it just got worse. - Read more ...
  2. Based on other reviews I cut the butter down to 3/4 cup and it was plenty. Next time I would increase the amount of chocolate and use a bigger tin - I found the base was too thick. Great taste though.
  3. They turned out even better than I expected! I lined my dish with parchment paper and that worked out great. I only used 2 cups of confec. sugar. As for the chocolate, I used 1/2 milk chocolate and 1/2 semisweet, added a tbsp of margarine and a rounded tablespoon of peanut butter. Let me tell - Read more ...
  4. These were really really good. I made a few small changes to reduce the fat/sugar content: used reduced fat graham crackers (about 16 crushed up) reduced fat peanutbutter and I reduced the amount of sugar to 2 cups and used 2/3 cup melted margarine instead of the butter. I also used equal parts of milk - Read more ...
  5. this recipe is delicious. If you will add a half a cup of peanut butter to the chocolate it keeps it creamier and stops it from getting hard and breaking up. It also gives it a richer taste. The other thing I do is use milk chocolate chips. a litle secret is you can use - Read more ...
  6. Delicious! I didn't change a thing. I made two batches for a bake sale tomorrow and am disappointed I can't keep them all for myself. FYI: I figured out that 2.5 cups graham cracker crumbs is the same as 15 whole graham crackers (where each graham cracker is 4 of the small rectangles). At least - Read more ...
  7. These are addictive even with my lowering fat changes! I used half the margarine just 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup milk chocolate chips. The excess sugar and fat seems unnecessary as it is plenty tasty with a lot less! Great treat. Fast to make and no hot oven!
  8. These are absolutely delicious. Originally I made them for dessert tonight but when they came out I had to have a little taste...WOW. I made the mistake of cutting them right out of the fridge....didn't see the other reviews until too late and the chocolate layer did not stick to the peanut butter layer and - Read more ...
  9. I thought this tasted great, just like the PB cups. I would recommend milk chocolate instead of semi-sweet. Also, I refridgerated the bars for an hour, then tried to cut them. Bad mistake. The chocolate layer cracked as I cut it. I'd recommend only putting it in for a short while (5 min) then cut, - Read more ...
  10. These were wonderful!!! Sooo very easy. I lined the pan with parchment and let it hang over the edge of the pan. I just lifted the whole thing out and they sliced perfectly. Thank you this will be used often.
