Peanut Cocoa Spread + Twisted Cinnamon Wreath = HEAVEN ~TASTE & CREATE

Taste and Create was started as a food event by Nicole from For the Love of Food.  The whole purpose of Taste and Create was, and has been, and continues to be to create a community of bloggers who test each others’ recipes and share links. The participants of the event are paired together and try a new recipe from one another’s blog.
This month I was paired with Joey at Little Accidents in the Kitchen.  I love being paired with someone I’ve never been paired with before I inevitably learn sooooooo much, and find great new recipes.  I combined 2 of her recipes for an awesome outcome. 

Peanut Cocoa Spread + Twisted Cinnamon Wreath = HEAVEN

Joey was craving Nutella, but didn’t have the ingredients to make any so used what she did have on hand and made Peanut Cocoa Spread. I don’t think I’ll ever buy Nutella again since it’s so easy to make.

80g dark chocolate, chopped
100g peanut butter
30g icing sugar (adjust according to taste)
