RECIPE BACKSTORY
I'm always trying to invent something. Occasionally, it works out. My daughter's boyfriend adores the chocolate and peanut butter combination and this is what I came up with for him. Unfortunately, the pics are on my other computer and I haven't gotten the wireless connection to work yet, so they will come later.
