Viewers’ Peanut Butter Fix

Viewers shared their favorite peanut butter dishes in honor of National Peanut Butter Lovers Day.

“Peanut Butter & Co is my favorite brand of peanut butter; they have more than just smooth or crunchy. My favorites in order are Dark Chocolate Dreams, great on celery for a snack. Second is The Heat Is On, mixed with canned chicken on whole wheat wrap is almost as good as a Thai Satay. Third is Crunch Time, this is great on wheat bread with dill pickles. Fourth is White Chocolate Wonderful, this is great swirled in brownies. They have more flavors, Smooth Operator, also good in brownies and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl good on toast. I also have their cookbook with lots of recipes, only a few that I have tried. The bad part is I no longer can find it locally, but it is available online at their website Peanut Butter & Co.”

“My family’s favorite Peanut Butter Treat is stuffed French toast. We spread a generous amount of PB between two pieces of bread, then dip the PB sandwich in the French Toast Egg mixture and cook as you would a single piece of bread. The Peanut Butter melts in the middle for tons of ooey gooey fun!! Top with syrup and/or powdered sugar and there you go. For more fun you can make a Peanut Butter and Banana sandwich or a simple PB&J. Delicious!!”

“My husband has recently found a new peanut butter love. He is totally obsessed with Smucker’s Goobers…you know the jar of peanut butter and jelly in stripes. He loves the strawberry flavor and lately he has been upset because wherever we go grocery shopping he can only find the grape flavor. He will eat it out of a jar with one of my daughter’s baby spoons. He has a precise way of eating it too (he reminds me of this quite often)….he scrapes in a circular pattern so that it doesn’t get all mixed up. It is so funny. He is seriously like a little kid when it comes to this. He even has a hard time sharing with our 2 year old. It is pretty funny. So just buying him Strawberry Goobers will make his day!! =)”

“My indulgence is sliced granny smith apples, salt them with sea salt and then dip each slice with peanut butter. Yummy!!!!!”

– Cheryl Butler

“My family loves Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies. They are absolutely wonderful. I justify the butter, sugar, peanut butter and chocolate with the fact that they have 3 whole cups of oatmeal! So, they are really WHOLE GRAIN cookies. It makes me feel better knowing I’m eating healthy while getting my peanut butter chocolate fix!”

“My favorite peanut butter treat we call peanut butter fingers. It’s a peanut butter brownie with chocolate chips melted over the top and a thin peanut butter frosting spread over the top. They are SO yummy. My mom and my sister-in-law make them and they are always gone in a flash.”

– Heather Slade

“My family favorite are corn flake treats. It takes an entire jar of peanut butter (18 oz), 8 cups of corn flakes, sugar and karyo syrup. They are simple and a huge hit everywhere.”

– Jodi Mims

“My favorite peanut butter indulgence is peanut butter pudding layered with deep chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. Yum!”

– Maggie Watte

“My favorite peanut butter treat is to take peanut butter, melted Hershey’s chocolate, and whipped topping, and mix them together. Then roll it into balls. Then crush up a bunch of peanuts chocolate chips, and graham crackers, and roll the peanut butter mixture into the peanut graham cracker and chocolate chip mixture. It’s delightful!”

“When we were children (I am now 66 years old) my mother would make us large spoons filled with peanut butter and jelly and send us outside to lick like lollipops. To this day I still enjoy this treat if I am craving a dessert.”

– Don Dejarnatt

“My ultimate favorite is chocolate ice cream with the ribbons of real peanut butter running through it. Runner up would be Schwan’s chocolate peanut butter ice cream; theirs has mini peanut butter cups in the chocolate ice cream. Yum Yum.”

– Tonya Hanson

“My favorite Peanut butter indulgence would be Peanut Butter Ice Cream. When you get that strip of creamy goodness mixed in with the vanilla its heaven! Although Im a Peanut butter lover. I Just wanted to say that I love watching Studio 5!”

– Jessica Clarke

“My favorite quickie homemade treat is peanut butter on graham crackers. And if I want a real treat a little bit of Hershey chocolate sandwiched in between. It’s like a Peanut butter smore. I think I’ll fix these for the kids tonight to celebrate Peanut Butter day.”

– Tamara Davis

“My favorite is toast with peanut butter and dill pickle slices. (JIF smooth pbtr. and kosher baby dill pickles from the Dollar Tree! The BEST!)”

– Jean Horlacher

“My favorite Peanut Butter treat is the “Peanut Butter Mood” smoothie from Jamba Juice. It’s not too overwhelmingly sugarly, and hits the spot for that Peanut Butter Crave with chocolate treat! YUMMM!”

– Jennifer Tolman

“Other than PB & J; my favorite recipe is homemade peanut butter fudge.”

– Sue Blood

“When my kids where little we didn’t have much money to spare for treats. I was on the wic program and we received peanut butter and cheerios as part of the food. I took a recipe for yummy bars and made it with cheerios instead of rice krispies. My kids loved them and named them cheerio squares. Even now when they come home they ask for cheerio squares. It is a favorite treat for my kids and grand kids.”

– Sandy

“I love mixing peanut butter with my ice-cream. Vanilla + Peanut Butter + Chocolate syrup = Reeses Cups, Strawberry ice-cream (or vanilla with strawberry syrup)+ Peanut butter = PB + J, Double fudge + PB = Peanut butter brownies, etc.”

– D.L. John

“My favorite peanut butter indulgence is rice crispy square with chocolate peanut butter on top! yummmm! However…. my oldest son is deathly ALLERGIC to peanuts… (becoming more and more common in U.S…. side note: the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends not giving your child nut products until after age 3! just about every 1 yr old in US eats a PBJ sandwich at 2…) Anyhoo…. allergy in our family… so peanut butter is a no go in our home…. SOLUTION? Harmons carries a great soy butter in their health food section called I.M Healthy Soynut butter…. SO GOOD! We love it (interestingly enough our son with allergy does not like it…) but the rest of us love it and are happy there is an alternative that we can enjoy and know that this great kid of ours is safe and healthy with I.M. Healthy in our cupboard!”
