It is time again for the “Secret recipe club” reveal! I am sure you all know what the club is about, but for the few of you who still don’t know about it, here goes a brief explanation. It is a great concept… each month you are assigned a participating food blogger to make a recipe from and in turn someone else will be assigned your blog. All you have to do is choose a recipe, make it and blog about it on the specified date. The only rule is to keep it a secret! If you are interested in learning more, or want to join the club, please visit the Secret recipe club website.
This month I was assigned The Avid Appetite, written by the very talented Rachel. Rachel lives in Jersey City and her blog is full of delicious recipes. I had a hard time choosing only one, but in the end I picked these amazing Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies… don’t they look sinful?? And I can guarantee that they taste as delicious as they look.
Thank you so much for this great recipe Rachel! Please, make sure you drop by Rachel at The Avid Appetite and check out her beautiful site!
