I have to say that this was good, but with the overwhelmingly excellent reviews I was really expecting something more. I liked how easy the recipe was. I did use butter instead of margarine, so perhaps that made the difference, although I find that I generally prefer butter in a recipe over margarine. I think it should be pointed out that with the chocolate sauce (and maybe this is only true if you use real butter), you should spoon the chocolate out onto the top of the peanuts, avoiding dumping the leftover oil onto it. The oil acts as a great lubricant so that the chocolate doesn't stick to the pot, but what little oil got onto my dessert gave it an undesirable "glazed" looking effect upon serving. As I said, the taste was fine, but it's not "the best dessert I've ever eaten". I'd make this again, certainly.
