I know, I know…you’re still in a sugar coma from Valentine’s day…but I couldn’t wait to share this delicious recipe. Recently, I was contacted by the Harvard Sweet Boutique to see if I would want to taste test and share one of their recipes. Peanut butter mixed with chocolate? I’m in. A little bit about the boutique
