Holy cow these are great!!! I made as written and made as dessert to my family of 6 and 6 teenagers. My pan made 20 generous slices and all are now gone. My husband and children are upset there is none left for tomorrow. Looks like I am baking them again, perhaps even again tomorrow. I wish I were apart of your Christmas bake exchange!! Thanks Pamela for posting the recipe.

I made this recipe and everyone who tasted it said they loved it as they searched for a second or third piece. I didn't have any peanuts on hand and found that it was missing that special something so... note to self for next time, add peanuts. Definately a recipe to curb the gooey chocolate PB craving. Thanks Pamela!
