MMMMMMM! Peanut butter. There are so, so many raves about bacon, but how about peanut butter!!!!
There are so many ways to eat peanut butter. I have yet to find a way that I did not like. Some of these may sound odd, but do not knock it until you try it.
There is the plain peanut butter sandwich. There is a peanut butter and onion sandwich. There is a peanut butter and bacon sandwich. Peanut butter on tortillas is good, too! There is peanut butter and toast. This makes the peanut butter sort of melt and is warm and delicious. To make it even better, you can sprinkle a little sugar over the top. Yummers! You can melt some peanut butter in the microwave and drizzle over ice cream. Eat it that way or also drizzle some magic shell chocolate over it as well. I like to spread peanut butter on oatmeal cookies. Apple slices dipped in peanut butter are very good. I have not tried this yet but, I have heard of people putting peanut butter on a hamburger. That does NOT sound appetizing to me at all. I do love peanut butter chicken, though. We have taken buns and toasted them and spread with peanut butter and topped them with maple syrup. It tastes remarkably like a maple square! I, of course, cannot have gluten so I do not get these treats any longer. Of course there is celery and peanut butter but that is sort of ordinary. Pretzels dipped in peanut butter are very addicting. There are all of the cookies and peanut butter treats that you can bake. I cannot list all of them on here, I would not have the space here or the time! Peanut butter fudge is awesome!
One special treat our whole family loves is peanut butter Rice Krispie treats. I really do not know what they are called, but I remember a friend, Marsha Wright, bringing them to us. This was a long time ago. I know that it was after 1994 and before 1998. That sounds odd to state it that way, but that is based on the house we lived at when she brought them to us. That is as close as I can get to how long ago it was. She pulled up in our driveway and jumped out of her car with a plate and was smiling and hurrying to our door. She was exclaiming, “Oh my gosh! You guys have to try these!” We had one complaint, we wanted more! They were so good! She even brought the recipe with her! It is by far one of the best recipes ever! I will post the recipe below.
These are great warm! It is hard for us to wait to let them set up. Sometimes after they have set up, we take them and dip them in chocolate bark and let them harden. Around Christmas, the freezer is full of them. They are always the first thing to go. They do not last long around here.
Anyway, I think peanut butter should be treated with as much respect as bacon! Lol. What ways do you eat peanut butter?
