    perfect dessert or appetizer dip! I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, and used a combination of maple syrup (2 T) and coconut sugar (4T), with the result being just a little less sweet than original recipe. Served with whole wheat water crackers and thin ginger cookies, along with a side of berry salad. Nothing left to take home!  -  19 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    As-is, it was okay. Once I added a teadpoon of espresso powder, it was *amazing.* If you don't have espresso powder, coffee powder could work, or just brew strong coffee and use that in place of water. Can't wait to eat this with cookies, fruit, and pretzels!  -  07 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
