Chewy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars

Kraft’s Chewy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars

With peanut butter, chocolate chips, dried cherries (I used raisins), and oats, these may as well be called “everything bars.”

Homemade Peanut Butter

Alton Brown’s Homemade Peanut Butter

The jar may say Wegman’s but this peanut butter is homemade.  The great thing about making your own nut butter is you can adjust the chunkiness and salty-sweetness just the way you like it.  I used agave instead of honey here; change up this recipe by experimenting with different nuts, oils, and seasoning (cocoa-almond butter anyone??)  You just have to process the crap out of it until it all comes together–use your Vitamix if you have one!



Peanut Butter Globe Gobs

Tasty, simple, fun for the kids to make, and nutritious too?  Yeah, you’ll want to make these.


Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart

Martha Stewart’s Chocolate-Peanut Butter Tart

I made this recipe in a tart pan, and it turned out beautifully.  The only problem was…it was soooo salty.  I would try first omitting the salt in the filling, and add it in pinch-by-pinch if you think it needs some.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

This is a recipe to satisfy all peanut butter cookie cravings–crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle.  I found this in my grandmother’s recipe box, and she had dubbed it “good”–her designation for something to make again!



Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Hershey’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownies

Did you know Hershey’s makes these itty-bitty peanut butter cups?  They’re the perfect size for stirring in to and topping treats, like these peanut butter-laced brownies.
