Brownies with American Heritage Chocolate

This post was sponsored by American Heritage Chocolate as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary product to facilitate my review.

I know it almost sounds cliche to say I love chocolate, but it is true… chocolate is one of my great loves. About two years ago I tried American Heritage Chocolate for the first time and fell in love with this decadent and spicy chocolate and have been using it in my brownie recipes ever since.

I love the flavors that the not as sweet tasting chocolate with a hint of spices and chilies American Heritage Chocolate gives my brownies.  Try this yummy brownie recipe using American Heritage Chocolate for yourself…

Until recently if I wanted American Heritage Chocolate I’ve had to order it, so I was very excited to find out that I can now buy it at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores.

I love the Chocolate Bites, not only as an add in to my brownie recipe, but also as a snack, since they come individually wrapped in a keepsake muslin bag, perfect for giving as a gift, too.

We live near a few Cracker Barrel restaurants that we frequent often, which will make picking up American Heritage Chocolate so convenient. You can find a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store location near you. Unfortunately, AMERICAN HERITAGE® Chocolate Bites are available for a limited time. Be sure to experience chocolate as our ancestors did at one of Cracker Barrel’s 630 stores in 42 states, before supplies run out!
