22 Reasons to Love Chocolate and Peanut Butter

If you’ve followed my baking adventures here at BoB for even a short time, you probably are quite familiar with my love of all things chocolate and peanut butter. I know that many of you share that love, too.

One of the first recipe collections I put together was to celebrate chocolate and peanut butter. But a lot of good things have gotten baked since then, so I thought it was high time I did an updated collection for all of us that can’t get enough of chocolate and peanut butter.

Enjoy! And happy baking!
