It's sweet, it's simple, and one half of that [or the] sandwich synonymous with childhood: Jelly. The problem is, it's not all that nutritious, but with my easy to make recipe, it can be pretty healthy and damn tasty to boot. Did I mention there's no added pectin?

I know we're all supposed to be busting out our fall, full-of-pumpkin recipes right now, but today I just really wanted good old chocolate and peanut butter. And I decided if I was going to go for it, I was really going to go for it. So I started brainstorming and came up with a peanut butter cup and Oreo dirt cake.
