Chocolate Peanut Butter Pizza

chocolate peanut butter pizzaWith our weekly “Family Night” also comes the need for a weekly yummy treat. This week’s treat was an experiment that worked really well according to our very own peanut butter aficionado.

Although it was a little too peanut buttery for some in the audience., I’m  not worried! Those of us who loved it will be enjoying it for several days!
