I made these this afternoon and they are great. Some of you might think they are too sweet, but not me, I love sweet. I used the mini reese's peanut butter cups rather thatn the .75 ounce ones and reduced fat peanut butter. These will go on the repeat list.

I second Terry's review. I used the mini's, too, and bittersweet chips. They weren't too sweet for us, either. I baked mine in an 8x8 (thought I had a 9x9 but didn't).

For those following WW, the 20 count recipes is 4P+; my 8x8 with 16 pieces were 5P+. Worth it!
