Ny DH Peanut butter lover really enjoyed this! Was ok about it warm but he thinks it will be better cold! We`ll try it cold and I will repost after his opinion then. kcdelong`s review made me change the recipe thinking it wouldn`t be creamy! It was very creamy. I did use room temp.cream 5 ounces cheese mixed with peanut butter in the food processor then cut in the same amout of sugar. I liked it! I`m thinking to get chocolate into it some how! Maybe placing it on some hot fudge!!

This was a good recipe. It tasted wonderful. I had a little problem with it not being as creamy as I would like, but the taste was outstanding. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.
