wonderful and easy recipe, I added a little more peanut butter (you can never go wrong with extra peanut butter!)

REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
The taste was good, and it was really easy to make, but I'd advise anyone who makes this to add a few tablespoons more of cocoa, and not to let the initial mixture boil. If you do it has a tendency to burn at the bottom before it boils on top. Just let it melt and go from there.
