Thanks for the reply. One additional question... I just noticed I ended up adding way too much cocoa powder. When I was reading the recipe I must have gotten the cocoa powder and the cacao nibs mixed up, because I added 4 oz of cocoa powder.
So instead of 1/4 cup, 4 oz was probably closer to 2 cups (half of the container). So this is going to be realllly chocolatey. Do you think I should just leave out the cacao nibs? I was really hoping the peanut butter flavor would come through.
