    I've made this a few times now and can't quite get the consistency right but love the flavor!!  -  28 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I use 2Tbsp maple syrup or honey, in place of the sugar. I also used Dutch chocolate as I have never found dark cocoa powder.  -  12 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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)
