This recipe, which is on the bottom of this page, has seven ingredients, but if you're like me, you probably already have milk, sugar, butter, and peanut butter at home. So I only had to purchase a few items from the store. One of the most important ingredient here is the chocolate. The recipe asks for SEMI-SWEET chocolate. SEMI is a prefix placed before a word to mean "partly but not completely". Semisweet chocolate has more chocolate percentage than Milk Chocolate but less than Dark Chocolate. So it's partly sweet and chocolaty but not completely! That's the meaning of SEMI.
