We are definite peanut butter lovers in this house! Even the dogs can’t get enough of the stuff! When I saw this recipe floating around pinterest I knew it was one we needed to try! They were great, not too rich just the right amount of sweetness! A definite distinct creamy peanut butter taste with just a hint of chocolatey goodness.
