In the World of Treats, is there any yummier partnership than chocolate + peanut butter?
Considering the fact that my entire family knows to hide their Reese’s PB Cups from me, my answer would be no. No, there is most certainly no better collaboration than chocolate and peanut butter. It’s simply the best combo of flavors ever. Whoever first thought of melding peanut butter and chocolate was a total genius.
