For me, the ideal dessert combines the flavors of chocolate and peanut butter. So when I came up with this rich treat, it quickly became my all-time favorite. It's a cinch to whip together because it doesn't require any baking. —Debbie Price, LaRue, Ohio

"Made this for my grandson (age 22) and he loved it! Popped the remainder in the freezer just to see what would happen and it froze very well. Now I can have it on hand whenever he stops by and is craving some chocolate."

"I love this recipe! I made it for my husband to take to a work dessert contest and won first place! I'm diabetic, so I tweaked the recipe a little to make it a little lower in sugar. I use light whipped topping, and sugar free pudding."
