    Mmmmm, this was delicious. Reeses pieces is an accurate comparison! It is very rich though and should be served with a big glass of milk! I had to cook for a little bit longer than it says, perhaps because I didn't have my oven on fan forced. It was still lovely and moist though. Thank you for the recipe!
