In my world, there is nothing better than the flavors of pb and chocolate! If you live in the same world, you may agree and want to try this recipe for a delectable kick-your-feet-up dessert. I found this in my KA manual with steps listed as I found them. You may need to adjust the specifics if not a using a Kitchen Aid mixer.

My pb & chocolate lover nephew, thought this was "freaking" delicious. Higher praise will not be found! I also enjoyed this recipe. I did, however, take a different direction. I had purchased some graham cracker pie crusts that I needed to use. I "painted" the cracker crust with chocolate syrup and refrigerated to set it a little. From step 4, followed exactly. Thnx for sharing your delicious recipe, DuChick.
