Author Notes: The inspiration for this treat came from a confection I made last year at Passover time using matzo, peanut butter and dark chocolate. I added a layer of Dulce de lLche on one side and peanut butter on the other. This week I had several kinds of chocolate on hand (milk, dark, white, and dark with ginger) and several nut butters (peanut, almond and cashew). . I made several versions of this treat: white chocolate with almond butter and coarse sea salt, milk chocolate with peanut butter and sprinkles, dark chocolate with peanut butter, dulce de leache and sea salt, cashew butter with dark chcocolate and ginger with sea salt,to name a fewt I suggest melting several different types of chocolate, trying more than one kind of nut butter, using different sprinkles or sugars or salts as a topping. This could be fun to make with kids but I confess, I made them for me and my adult friends to enjoy! —JoanG
