Peanut Butter Chocolate Yum

I had to bring a dessert to a dinner and I decided on this one. I knew it would be rich and decadent. The best part about this dessert is that a little goes a long way. It is rich and peanut buttery, but smooth and cool also. I ate some for lunch the next day and it was even better than the first day I made it.
