Make It a Little Less Intense
This really is a rich chocolate and peanut butter flavor explosion, but if you want to tame it down a bit, it's still delicious without the peanut butter topping. Shop for sugar-free vegan chocolate chips at your health-food store, or try it with carob chips to make it even “healthier.”
