I got this from BHGs holiday baking magazine. I haven't tried it yet, but plan on doing so very soon. Looked too good to pass up.

Yummy! I followed the recipe exactly as written, except that I didn't have peanuts and chocolate-covered grahams to garnish it with. It was divine right out of the oven, sort of like a pudding cake. The cocoa/sugar/water mixture made a gooey sauce that sank to the bottom of the pan, and the peanut butter mixture rose to the top. It wasn't as sweet as I'd expected, not a sugar overload. Very easy, and very tasty, I'll be making it again. Thanks, NurseDi!
