    I found nothing special about this and really didn't like that much. It tasted like melted chips. I think there have to be better recipes out there.

    Excellent! It's a flatter type of fudge and difficult to cut but really delicious!

    I really liked this recipe because it yielded some tasty, well-formed fudge. I followed the directions (though I forgot to get fat free condensed milk) and it turned out great! The only change I made was using less coffee and I sprinkled toffee pieces (think Heath Bar) on the top instead of peanuts. That topped it off perfectly.

    Flavor was good and the family liked it, but it never set to the point of being easily handleable. I had to freeze it to separate it into squares, and once it returned to room temperature it turned ooey again. I did use homemade condensed milk so this may have affected consistency. I would probably make this again but would try tweaking the recipe to make it firmer.

    While the flavor of this was okay I wouldn't make it again. The peanut butter layer never did firm up - had the consistency of a really soft caramel. The chocolate layer was firm coming out of the frig but had started to soften before I was halfway done trying to cut them up. I put them in the mini baking cups to keep them from oozing back together.

    Almost didn't make this due to the reviews, but it was quick, tasted good, and fun to make with kids. Will definitely make again.

    I made this recipe as a part of homemade gifts for the holidays this year and I loved the results! I did however for ease of getting "individual servings" pour the batter evenly into 10 muffin tins coated with cooking spray and let chill / firm in the fridge for the 2 hours. I purchased "nut topping" at the store and sprinkled on top in lieu of chopping peanuts myself. After the chill time, I ran a butter knife around the edges and each treat popped out perfectly - I then placed in holiday cupcake papers and refrigerated until I was ready to hand out. Each little treat was perfectly adorable and everyone raved about the taste! The dark chocolate layer is extremely decadant but the peanut butter balances it out. Super simple to make and tasty - I would definitely make again and again! Enjoy!

    These were quick and easy to make. I didn't want to buy instant coffee so just ground up some regular beans... I would add more coffee next time, maybe decaf. Also, be sure to gently press the chopped peanuts into the top layer before you put the baking dish in the fridge. This is a VERY sweet treat, but when cut into small sized pieces, is perfect to take to a shower or party, or to have at home for "something sweet" after dinner.

    Chocolate and peanut butter=yummy. However this recipe was just way to food policed for me. I had to make too many adjustments to get the end result I was looking for, which is usually par for the course for recipes from "Cooking Light". I increased the chocolate layer by 25% and used milk chocolate chips because that's my preference when it comes to chocolate. Also I used regular condensed milk instead of fat free. This is fudge for goodness sake, it's an occasional indulgence so indulge and don't worry about it. Instead of getting 25 chincey teasers I cut the batch into 16 squares.

    So disappointed. Tasted good, but after reading reviews about not firming up, I left it in the fridge overnight before attempting to cut, The pb layer was fine, it was the dark fudge part that was a gooey mess, I chopped peanuts and put between layers and pressed down hoping the layers would stick together, they didn't. I also added chopped peanuts and chopped heath bar (thanks linnell). Don't know if I'll try it again.
