Whenever I post a low carb peanut butter and chocolate recipe, they get a great deal of attention. My Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Popsicles went completely viral and not just with the low carb set.
All the world is in love with peanut butter and chocolate. No need to bake for hours and then carefully decorate with frosting. It almost feels like cheating, to whip up individual cakes in ramekins in about 20 minutes. And then, the marriage of the two.
