Terri's Notes

~ This will be an instant tradition for something you celebrate!
~ If the peanut butter sauce is too thick to drizzle on, reheat it just a bit or add a tablespoon
  more of the milk.
~ Candy bars now come already crumbled in packages in the baking aisle!
~ This may end up taller than your bowl – stunning, and it won’t over-flow! To keep it ‘pretty’, you may cover and refrigerate after adding the pudding layer and then add the last layer of whipped topping and candy sprinkles just before serving.

~ Butterscotch or caramel chips with Heath bar crumbles may be used in place of peanut butter chips and Nestle’s Crunch Bars.
