Peanut Butter and Co. 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook #Giveaway #Recipe

Are you a peanut butter fan? Well my family is. We have found a great place that I would like to introduce you to. Peanut Butter & Co. They are all about peanut butter and now chocolate too! Here is a little information about Peanut Butter & Co. from the website:


 Peanut Butter & Co.'s line of all-natural peanut butter contains no hydrogenated oils, no cholesterol, no trans-fats and, no high fructose corn syrup. Our flavors are gluten-free, vegan (except for The Bee's Knees which is vegetarian), and certified kosher. Lastly, but just as importantly, we only use USA-grown peanuts in our peanut butter. At Peanut Butter & Co., we continue to find ways to bring you healthful and delicious products. We've just introduced our new line of all-natural baking mixes as well as peanut butter packets that you can enjoy on the go. We've got lots more in store, so please keep us company on your journey to deliciousness!


About the Founder: Lee Zalben is the founder and president of New York City's world famous Peanut Butter & Co., and the man behind "gourmet peanut butter." . On December 21, 1998, the vacant storefront became the Peanut Butter & Co. Sandwich Shop, offering not just various kinds of peanut butter sandwiches like The Elvis and Pregnant Lady but also peanut butter in newfangled flavors like Dark Chocolate Dreams and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.
It was only a matter of time when people started clamoring to take the peanut butter home. Today, Peanut Butter & Co. is sold in ten delicious flavors in over 10,000 stores around the country and in Canada, the U.K., Japan, and Hong Kong. And the sandwich shop has turned into a pilgrimage site for many peanut butter lovers all over the world. Lee's dream to open a peanut butter sandwich shop did not just become a reality, but he also created the market for specialty peanut butter.
I was very fortunate to be able to review, a 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook together with a 28oz jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams

Double Chocolate Dreams - At Peanut Butter & Co., we think that the only thing sadder than a day without chocolate is a day without peanut butter. So here it is folks, a cookbook with a Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter recipe for every day of the month – the 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook! Conceived and written by the Peanut Butter Guy himself, Lee Zalben, Founder & President of Peanut Butter & Co., the cookbook pays tribute to the company’s #1 selling peanut butter flavor. 
 You’ll find simple recipes for old time favorites like Crispy Rice Treats, Blondies, and Bread Pudding, as well as delectable recipes to make for more celebratory occasions like Crepe Cake, Swiss Roll, Tiramisu, and Pear Tart.  Get this FUN cookbook together with a 28oz jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams for yourself, your sweetie, or a friend! Everything just tastes better with peanut butter and chocolate!

 Peanut butter and chocolate, are a match made in heaven, to me there is nothing more scrumptious and delicious. So when I had the chance to check out a check out a cook book that was entirely filled with great chocolate peanut butter desert creation.. Well I did not have to think twice, I was ready and I could not wait to bake! There were so many amazing sound recipes, from bread pudding to cheese cake.. 
What a wonderful selection but what to make hmmm? Well after much deliberation I settled on the first item I would make from the cookbook (there will be many more down the road, I am sure) I came up with Dark Chocolate Dreams Marbled Pound Cake. I have never make pound cake, so I wanted to challenge myself and make this rich dessert.  Here is the easy to follow recipe to bake this amazing cake at home:
 Dark Chocolate Dreams Marbled Pound Cake


Dark Chocolate Dreams Marbled Pound Cake (recipe from 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook)

Takes: 1.5 hours plus 15 minutes to cool Makes: 8-12 slices

Ingredients:
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ cups sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon of salt

½ cup dark chocolate dream peanut butter

1.       Preheat oven to 325 degrees  and spray a 9X5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2.       In a mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixture until creamy. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract and continue beating until well combined.
3.       In a separate mixing bowl combine with flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and fold together, just until a batter forms. Transfer 1/3 of this batter to another mixing bowl and stir in the Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter.
4.       Pour half of the vanilla pound cake into the prepared pan  and then top with the Dark Chocolate Dreams batter. Top with the remaining vanilla batter and use the tip of a knife to lightly swirl both batters together.
5.       Bake 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from the pan and slicing to serve. Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
This came out amazing! The pound cake had a wonderful flavor that my family loved. The only issue I had, was my fault I did not “swirl” the chocolate as much as I should have so it was not much of a swirl. But it still looked great, and tasted even better.
 So if you are looking for a new cookbook, that has amazing sweets, that are just as good as they look in the picture. I would highly suggest picking up a copy of 31 Days of Dark Chocolate Dreams Cookbook, and of course a jar or two of Dark Chocolate Dreams.
