Holiday Dark Chocolate Dream Brownies

Holiday Dark Chocolate Dream Brownies are deliciously dreamy! by #chocolate #brownies #recipes

Holiday Dark Chocolate Dream Brownies are so very worthy of being called ‘Dreamy’… oh my.

I just love all of Peanut Butter & Co. varieties and Dark Chocolate Dream just happens to be one of my faves! Have you discovered Peanut Butter & Co brand?  All of their peanut butter is kosher, gluten-free and vegan (except for The Bee’s Knees which is vegetarian).  Guess what?  Since I’m a member of the YUM SQUAD – there’s a 25% off code for my readers for any online orders through the month of December for all my readers : YUMSQUADLOVE (case sensitive)  so check it out!

This recipe is part of a little friendly competition called The Candy Cane Hack Recipe Challenge.  Peanut Butter & Co. sent me a couple of jars of peanut butter and a box of candy canes with the challenge to produce a Holiday Recipe that will inspire you with a fun new way to use up those extra candy canes that are always laying around this time of year.

AND I have to admit they’re super awesome 🙂
