You HAVE to try this!! What a great combination-how can you go wrong with peanut butter, chocolate, and bananas?? This recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens Annual Recipes cook book (1998).

As some one mentioned it can get dry. I've made this 3 different times, today I used organic peanut butter which has a little more peanut oil in it. It was PERFECT with the extra oil, so if you were to make this without organic peanut butter, I'd add maybe 1/4c. of oil to the recipe, to help with the dryness. oh and DO NOT OVER COOK that will also contribute to the dry factor. This is a great base recipe to play with. :o)
