    Great recipe. Especially easy. Sure, they don't look pretty, but just by simply melting chocolate chips & spreading them on top, and then sprinkle finely chopped peanuts, they took on an entirely different look!! When I make these again, I will use milk chocolate chips, and/or increase the peanuts to one cup and leave out chips inside of it, and spread the melted chips on top. Just my preference. One can easily adjust this recipe. Worth a try to make.  -  11 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These taste great, yet they are unattractive. I brought them to a bake sale and nobody was buying them, yet when a man tried one he said "Wow, these are great!" and he bought the whole plate. The next time I made them I frosted them and put sprinkles and a cherry on them, and they sold right away. These are fabulous, and I'd recommend them to everyone.  -  08 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Every one loved it. I think those who had problems with it didn't cook the peanut butter mixture long enough. I used the last cup of chocolate chips in the bag as a frosting on top. As easy as making rice crispy treats! Thank you Mignonne  -  01 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
