Chocolate peanut butter pinwheels

Chocolate peanut butter pinwheels on eatlivetravelwrite.comDid you hear? There’s a new Philadelphia Cream Cheese in town – a LIMITED EDITION Philadelphia Chocolate Brick Cream Cheese!

Since one of my very favourite desserts is chocolate coeur à la crème, this new Philly brick is bound to be a favourite for me – although I do have to make sure I don’t just eat it straight from the package!  Tasked with coming up with a recipe for this fab new product, I made myself think outside the box, so, beyond coeur à la crème, chocolate cheesecake, or Little Pots of Jam and (Chocolate) Cream, I decided this cream cheese would go nicely in some sort of breakfast pastry. And hey, doesn’t peanut butter go well with chocolate?  And that’s how I decided to make little puff-pastry pinwheels stuffed with peanut butter and Philadelphia Chocolate Brick Cream Cheese!

Check out the recipe for my Chocolate Peanut Butter Pinwheels over on the Real Women of Philadelphia website and while you’re there, check out some tips for baking with the new Philly Chocolate!

    My daughter would probably use the whole brick before I got a chance to use it! I’m sure she would be putting it on bagels on taking them to school as part of her lunch!

    I’d make up a batch of oatmeal-coconut cookies, the kind that spreads quite thin when baked…let them cool and then sandwich pairs of cookies with a filling of the Philidelphia chocolate cream cheese (might also change up half of the sandwich cookies by adding a little orange zest to the chocolate cream cheese filling).

    I’ve been into toasting cinnamon raisin bread lately and I would use the brick as a spread on it. It would be a yummy combo.

    I’d use it on a bagel for a slightly less healthy but delicious start to the morning!

  11. Andrea Amy October 21, 2014 at 00:43 #

    I’m sure my husband would just eat it as is, but i would try to save some for toast or bagels 🙂

    I would use it on some home made biscuits

  14. Kristine Ewald October 21, 2014 at 21:26 #

    Would love to make bisquits

  15. Mark V. October 22, 2014 at 10:44 #

    I think id try to incorporate it into a cheesecake

  16. SUMMER PLEWES October 22, 2014 at 10:45 #

    I would definitely be making homemade tea biscuits. We love to cover them in butter, whip cream and strawberrys fresh out of the oven. chocolate would be a nice addition to that.

    I would use on toasted whole wheat bagels but would also love to try a chocolate cheesecake! Great for so many ideas!
