Chocolate and peanuts go together like....elephants and peanuts? Did you know that the cartoon portrayal of elephants liking peanuts is actually a myth?! As humans we can't hear most of the sounds elephants produce. Though they produce a sound at a decibel as loud as a construction sight, it is two octaves below human hearing. So how do we know they don't actually like peanuts? By studying their diet. There are no records of wild elephants eating peanuts and peanuts are certainly not included in their typical diet in captivity. So while elephants might not like peanuts, humans do, with 67% of the nut consumption in the U.S, being peanuts and peanut products.

Don't let the name fool you. Peanuts are not actually nuts, they are a legume. Other legumes are beans, peas and lentils. Peanuts take 4-5 months grow, from the time of planting to the time of harvest. Peanuts grow under the ground. Peanut seeds also called kernels grow into a green leafed plant that is about 18 inches tall. It is decorated with tiny, delicate yellow flowers. So while peanuts and elephants don't go together, peanuts and chocolate most certainly do! There isn't a lot to say about a recipe especially one as simple and basic as this one. Perhaps all that really matters it that it tastes great!
