I love peanut butter so freaking much. Yes, this is an actual photo from my kitchen.
I will definitely be eating peanut butter on this momentous day known as National Peanut Butter Day, but then again, I eat it practically every day. Perhaps I'll just eat it with slightly more appreciation today?
To celebrate, today I am going to share with you some of my all-time favorite peanut butter creations. The list started as just 10 but I kept on coming across other ones from my archives that are simply too good to miss. They're not in order of preference, just the order in which I recalled them.
It's fun to create food in the microwave, and extra fun when that food is chocolate peanut butter fudge. Just as tasty as it looks, and fun to tell people how you made it. The recipe linked to features butterscotch chips just because the photos are better, but I have made it with PB chips too and either way it's tasty. Recipe here.
This is one of my favorites ever, and one of the last desserts that caused me to have that "OMG can't stop eating" feeling because it was so good. That doesn't happen to me often given all the sweets around me, but when it does I know it speaks highly of the dessert in question. Recipe here.
Pound cake is already good, right? It gets better when you lightly grill it (it brings out the flavor and makes it extra-buttery!). And when it's peanut butter flavored and you top it with ice cream and raspberries, it's like a peanut butter and jelly sundae, in the most elegant way possible. Recipe here.
14. Peanut butter covered pretzels.
Like those "flipz" or whatever they are called, but instead of yogurt or raspberry or chocolate, these ones have a creamy white chocolate peanut butter coating. SO crave-worthy! I don't have a posted recipe but I will soon, OK?
OMG. Nanaimo bars are one of my favorite foods on earth, and peanut butter Nanaimo bars are one of my favorite variations. Seriously, peanut butter cups have nothing on these. Recipe here.
