  3. Add in peanut butter; stir until smooth.
  4. Stir in evaporated milk.
  5. Serve warm over ice cream.
  6. Top with chopped peanuts if desired.

Great stuff! Easy to make. I substituted half & half for the evaporated milk, and it still worked!

Terrific! EASY! Delicious !!! I didn't change anything and I only needed to microwave 3 minutes for the boil. I'm going to refrigerate in squirt bottles to save constant reheating the total mixture. I stopped buying store brands when peanut butter became so expensive last year, so to have this back in my pantry gives me such Joy LOL. :))
