On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I went to his brother’s apartment for a fun but low-key night.  They made us a delicious dinner and I, of course, brought dessert.  There were four of us and I made two desserts, an ice cream pie, and “cookies” composed of my favorite flavor combination, chocolate and peanut butter.  What better way to end the year?!

This was actually a very last minute dessert.  I happened to have extra peanut butter filling in my freezer and an open package of chocolate wafers in my cabinet.  You don’t even want to know how much baking chocolate I have on hand… When I thought through my inventory and the last time I used peanut butter filling, this recipe just came to me.
