I'm confused! This recipe refers to milk in the instructions however there is no listing for milk in the list of ingredients.

My family loved these so much that I was able to get my teenage son to make more of them with me. The recipe calls for unsalted peanuts, but I had salted peanuts on hand and they worked just fine. The salt may have even enhanced the chocolate flavor.
