I made this and we loved it! It is VERY intense with peanut butter taste so be prepared. DH normally wants 2 and couldn't do it with this one. Our guests even took the remaining 2 home with them. Thanks for a great recipe

A wonderful custard, made as directed. Warning: this has a very strong peanut butter flavor, and is very rich. Loved it! Very simple to make, too. Thanks, 2Bleu! Made for Photo Tag.

This was really yummy and very easy. My kids really enjoyed it and I think it would be great with a little raspberry or grape jam drizzled on top. I used natural peanut butter and it worked great!
