Great anytime but for Valentine's Day present this luscious dessert with words of love handwritten across the plate. To allow plenty of room for your message, choose an oversized dinner plate. Spoon remaining 2 oz. melted chocolate into a small Zip-Lock bag or a small squeeze bottle with a narrow tip. (If using a plastic bag, snip a tiny hole in bottom corner, using scissors). Write "Happy Valentine's Day" in chocolate around the rim of a large plate. Then serve placing 1 slice on prepared plate. Top with Peanut Butter Sauce, whipped topping and additional chopped peanuts. Serve with a kiss!
