Mason Jar Peanut Butter Brownie Sundaes

      February is here and I have been getting creative in the kitchen with another favorite food of mine, chocolate!  Cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate, contains heart healthy anti-oxidants called flavonals. Studies have shown that these flavonals can help relax blood vessels lowering blood pressure and may help prevent atherosclerosis (hardening of the blood vessels). The higher the amount of Cocoa the more antioxidants.  I recommend 70% Cocoa. Higher is good but if you are a super taster like me, it can be quite bitter.

     This week I am sharing my Mason Jar Peanut Butter Brownie Sundae recipe. Oh man, my mouth is watering already! These perfectly portioned desserts are a great way to treat yourself or flatter your Valentine.  My hubby has already given this recipe two thumbs up!

   Stay tuned, I have another chocolate inspired recipe coming next week!
