Marbled Chocolate Bars

Today, I’d like to welcome Jaime from Mom’s Test Kitchen.  A few weeks ago, I did a guest post for her while she celebrated her birthday (and it was chocolate).  Now I am so glad she has returned the favor and brought us another chocolate treat.  She has all sorts of recipes on her site from healthy to decadent.   For the purposes of a month of Solid Chocolate, might I recommend Milk Chocolate Frosting or Devil’s Food Cookies?  How about Chocolate Chip Pie, 3 Musketeer Brownies, or Peanut Butter Pretzel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies?  See, she knows her stuff!  Take it away, Jaime!!



I’m so excited to be here guest posting for Kristen! I absolutely adore her & her blog! And I’m so happy to be able to be a part of her month of CHOCOLATE!!!  What woman wouldn’t want to eat chocolate everyday for a month???  I should probably introduce myself first, huh ~ I’m Jaime, the wife and momma behind Mom’s Test Kitchen, my little space in the blog-o-spere where I share the recipes I make for my family. You won’t find anything too fancy over in my kitchen, just good simple recipes that a mom can make while stepping around a 2 year old & her puppy!
I absolutely love to bake!  Plus I have an INSANELY horrible sweet tooth so there was no doubt in my mind when Kristen asked if I wanted to share a chocolate recipe that I was definitely in!  These bars are sooo good & the hint of almond just makes the chocolate that much better!!
