      These were not for me. The middle layer felt too much like a spoonful of butter and the middle layer didn't stick to the crust. The top layer was too soft and melty making the whole thing gooey. I didn't have any problems with the crust or getting them out of the pan though. One of my kids thought these were great - just like pb cups.

      There were 7 of us tasting this dessert tonight. Five people loved it. One didn't like the crust. One thought it was okay, but not great. If possible I would have given it a rating of 4 1/2 but more people loved it here than those who didn't. Made for P.A.R.T.Y. 2011.

      Delicious!!! ...and an easy to follow recipe. However, I found that the middle layer didn't set, even after an hour in the fridge... and later on when I cut it up, the downwards force of the knife cause most of the middle to leak out. Next time I make it I'll tweek the quantitys a little and see if I can make it set. Absolutely beuatiful when you have a peanut butter craving though! Mmm.
