Do They Have Chocolate in Azkaban?

Happy Sunday! As I sit and watch Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the 3493046934690th time, you are probably still in your jammies, drinking your coffee. It’s a damnably delightful thing to do on a Sunday, no?

I suppose it’s a good thing I have the perfect Sunday Sweet recipe for you to enjoy with your coffee.

It’s a peasant bread, it’s made with cocoa and extra dark chocolate chips. It’s effing amazeballs with peanut butter. It’s like a friggen Christmas miracle.
