Yesterday I had the Heart and Soul children for lunch.Every Sunday us families from church take turns and feed them.I always enjoy it.Having been involved with the clubs at home it just makes it so much fun.They're cute,energetic,fun loving kids.Anyway,I decided to try this dessert.It was a new recipe for me but I think it's going to go into my cookbook and I thought I'd share it with you.It is so easy to put together and if you like peanut butter and chocolate,this is your kind of dessert!
