This dessert has long been a favorite with my family. I especially like the fact that it requires no baking—and who doesn’t melt for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate? —Ruth Blair, Waukesha, Wisconsin

"I bought some aluminum cake pans and made 4 of these as gifts. I usually let mine sit in the fridge for 48 hours to make sure its firm and ready for eating , and for the chocolate topping I add a little hot coffee as its melting to give it a richer flavor."

"If you like reese's peanut butter cups you will love this. It is easy to make and to save time I usually just buy 2 graham cracker crusts instead of making the crust but then you have to keep in mind to also make a little extra topping."
