31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams (a Giveaway)

by Stephanie Suire on January 28, 2014

GIVEAWAY is now CLOSED! Thanks to all who entered, scroll down to see the winner.

31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams cookbook

(The following post is inspired by the best-selling children’s book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie)

If you give a girl a cookbook, she’s going to start drooling over the recipes.

If she starts drooling over the recipes, she will get hungry and want to bake.

If she wants to bake, she will ask her husband to pick a recipe from the cookbook.

Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter

If he picks a recipe from the cookbook, it will most likely include peanut butter and chocolate.
(because the entire cookbook is filled with recipes using Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter)

If the recipe includes peanut butter and chocolate, it is going to taste really, really good…

About a week ago, I received an advance copy of the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook and a 28 ounce jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co.  As soon as it arrived, my husband starting looking through the recipes to “help me” decide what to bake and I was not surprised when he chose the Dark Chocolate Dreams Swirled Blondies.  For extra chocolate & peanut butter goodness, I added chocolate and peanut butter chips to the recipe.  The smell of the blondies baking filled the entire house and my daughter was asking for a bite before they even came out of the oven!

This simple recipe is quick to mix up but needs about 30 minutes to bake and another 30 minutes to cool.  They taste best when they have cooled completely, although we could not wait that long and dug in while they were still hot.  Sadly, we ate the entire pan before I was able to get a picture of one blondie!

One lucky winner will get their own copy of 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook and a 28 oz jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.  Just leave a comment below and I will randomly select a winner on Monday morning, February 3rd.  And while you wait to see if you’ve won, go ahead and bake a pan of swirled blondies to share with your family.

Because if you give your readers a recipe, they are going to want to bake…

And if they want to bake, they should bake Dark Chocolate Dreams Swirled Blondies

I have not tried them, but I would LOVE to since the only chocolate I like is dark. MMM, those bars looked great. Too bad you didn’t want to share.

I’ve used dark chocolate dreams as a twist in my classic peanut butter cookie recipe because a little chocolate makes everything better.
