We liked this but it could have been a little sweeter for us. I used a store brand of hershey's so that might not have been as sweet. My Dh said it was like drinking a peanut butter cup.

I made this peanut butter cocoa for my son. I didn't add whipped cream and more chocolate syrup on top and he liked it so much. Thanks Baby Kato :) Made for Zaar star game

This does taste like a peanut butter cup! (I actually made this twice-once with peanut butter and once with almond butter. Great both ways!) Made for Winter 2010 Comfort Cafe game.
