See how the cookies have kind of a brownish cast to them? That’s from the wonderful Skippy Natural Peanut Butter Spread with Dark Chocolate.

I have to admit, when I first read Dark Chocolate I thought to myself, I don’t know about this. But I thought I would try it because we really do go through a lot of peanut butter around here.

I am happy to report this stuff is good, and by good I mean really good! I have also used it in all types of baked goods and it’s wonderful. :)

My local grocery doesn’t carry it, but our Target stores do. So if you’re interested, keep your eyes open next time you’re in Target.
