    These were a big hit with the little ones at Christmas and also some of the big kids too.
    this recipe was easy and tasty. not the best but certainly not the worst. perfect for cutting into shapes. i did not use reeses chips and it was still delicious if no better
    I was very unimpressed with the flavor of the brownie. I didn't end up gifting them as planned, I ended up using a different recipe but copying the decoration idea, which was adorable. But the brownies... YUCK!!
    These brownies are so good. I made them for a party at my kids school. They are a HUGE hit! Now everyone wants the recipe. It is so easy to make and delicious!
    This is, without a doubt, THE best brownie recipe. I use white chips instead of peanut butter, but the recipe itself is easy and delicious! No matter what the occasion, these brownies are crowd pleasers!!
