    I used crunchy peanut butter, substituted 1/3 cup cocoa powder for half of the flour and chocolate chips for the peanuts, and reduced baking powder to about 1/4 tsp. They got devoured...  -  24 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Followed the directions exactly and they turned out great! Definately a keeper! I did add 2 tbsp of cocoa to give it a little chocolately flavor, just right!  -  04 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I added another 1/2 cup of peanut butter to make it even more "peanut buttery". PLUS, I added 1 cup of Chocolate Chips! Tasted like a Peanut Butter cup. Very yummy!  -  06 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
