    Divine – It doesn’t get any better than chocolate and peanut butter, does it? Such a classic combo.

    If you’d like, I wanted to invite you to share your best recipes over at my new party, Recipe Sharing Monday at Jam Hands. I’m going to be featuring my favorite submissions during the week and I’d love it if you’d join in the fun. :O)

    These were very yummy (except the last pan I forgot to take out of the oven…). I added some red and green sanding sugar to the tops before baking to make them a little bit festive!! Know if I can keep from eating them all before Christmas…..
