Chocolate Peanut Delight Recipe
Peanut lovers will appreciate this yummy dessert I dreamed up. A brownie-like crust is packed with nuts, topped with a fluffy peanut butter layer and covered with whipped topping and more nuts. It was so well received that I made it for a local restaurant where I used to work. -Karen Kutruff, New Berlin, Pennsylvania
