This is a Fun, Easy, and Tasty recipe to make! I made these as I love peanut butter and jelly, and then to add chocolate to it, for me it was worth doing a happy dance for! This would be a great recipe to do with children! I also think it would be a great football watching snack! Or even a great pot luck food! Enjoy as I did and do the happy dance!
