So This recipe came to be because I was having a HUGE peanut butter and chocolate craving! I took part of one recipe and part of another and put them together! One is from the Jello website and the other from the Summer Desserts magazine thingy by Jello and Cool Whip. I kind of tweaked things to my taste so don't be afraid to do the same! Enjoy!
