Peanut Butter Surprise

By: Kathryn - Oxford, WI - Recipe Contest 2015

When my mom was a teenager she visited her Dad’s first cousin Phillip and his wife. Phillip’s wife was a bit of a gourmet cook and she made this wonderulf dessert. My mom liked it so well that she asked her for the recipe and continued to make it on herself. I tweaked the recipe by substituting coffee for some of the milk and I really like the way it turned out.

This is a Door County Coffee Fan recipe. It was not made in the kitchens of the Door County Coffee Café.
