What an absolutely wonderful recipe!!! It was so delicious!! I took this to thanksgiving dinner and my mother in law could not get over how well it tasted! It was very impressive also!
Absolutely fabulous! Yes, it is a little time-consuming and so rich it will curb a week's worth of choc-pb cravings :) but so worth it for that special occasion or someone. Pure ecstasy!
I made this 12/07 for the first time. Have had several family/friend requests that I bring this dessert. Perfect for OSU (GO BUCKS) fans - especially baby or wedding showers or other occasions that call for a decadent dessert
