“Peanut butter and chocolate lovers unite! This is a snappy dessert that hardly takes any time or effort. It was born one night when I was craving something delicious and melty, but being a poor college student I found myself with limited ingredients and equipment. I'm so glad that was the case, because this is now one of my favorite desserts! Heck yes! ;)”
