I made this in four different variations, and they were all fantastic, but I improved upon them each time. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and used semi-sweet chips. Initially, I was concerned about the consistency when I did the final stir, but it came out fine. My only issue was I noticed some butter separated from the mix and pooled/congealed in air pockets on the bottom. I reduced the butter by 1 T going forward.
The second chocolate batch I used 1/2 c of peanut butter chips to cut some of the bitterness (mom's request). I added nuts this time as well. Magnificent.
The first batch of peanut butter was strictly peanut butter chips, the milk and the reduced amount of butter. Turned out great, but not as peanut buttery as I would have liked. Made another batch a few weeks later - reduced the butter to 1T and added 3T of peanut butter. It was amazing!!
Unfortunately, this recipe now gives me a super easy way to get my chocolate/sugar fix that has both a long shelf life and easy portability. I'm in trouble :)
