      these turned out quite well I made as stated and next time I am going to try this using darker chocolate, they definately need a chilling time to firm up, since this was a test run for the holidays i only made a half a recipe, I will make again, thank MRSJSPANTS!

      Oh wow! Made a half recipe last night since that fit the amount of ingredients on hand. Plus DH was looking for a sweet treat. Minor change was using evap milk since we had no whipping cream. Poured into a small (maybe 7 inch) pie dish. It might have stayed in the fridge 45 minutes before the "boys" (DH and DSS) just had to try it. No rolling into balls; they just ate it with spoons right from the dish. I got one small taste and it's very rich and tasty. The peanut butter taste wasn't as noticeable as we might have hoped, but it was a lovely smooth texture and great flavor. I can't comment on how easy it might be to roll into balls since we didn't get that far with it. I do think this would make a nice decadent sundae topping, however, and might try that in the future.
