I'm not a chocolate fan (atleast not the kind made in the U.S.), but I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate and this hit the spot. I found the recipe in 2007 Taste of Home Annual Recipes, and I followed as listed except I didn't have unsweetened chocolate. Joy of Cooking said to use 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa plus an additional tablespoon of butter per ounce as a substitute. So I used 9 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa and 3 additional tablespoons of butter which worked like a charm. Thank you Taste of Home and Joy of Cooking for your help with substitutions.
