    Thanks for this recipe roundup! I love peanut butter, especially together with chocolate. Recently I had a week long all consuming craving for brownies, specifically my old faithful brownie recipe. I inherited an extra jar of peanut butter so instead I decided to try making peanut butter pretzel brownies from Joy the Baker. I think I over-cooked them because they came out more cakey than fudgey, but otherwise were great. I’ll definitely try the recipe again, or may try a peanut butter swirl in my usual brownie recipe since my craving is Still Not Satisfied!


    • Sallyreplied on June 12th, 2012 at 9:37 am

      PB swirl brownies are my favorite! The dry cakey-ness could be from overcooking b/c I am sure that Joy’s recipe wouldn’t produce dry brownies. Give them a try again and undercook them a bit. I’m sure they will turn out fabulous! I love pb/chocolate/pretzels together. :) Thanks Katie!!


      • Katiereplied on June 13th, 2012 at 4:52 pm

        Oh yeah, I’ll definitely be trying them again and under cooking them, I think it’s my oven that was the problem (and possibly me for not setting the timer right) not the recipe. They’re still totally good (sitting on the counter and taunting me right at this very moment) just not quite the texture I was after.

    Lovely little roundup for today! I could sure go for one of those peanut butter cookies with Reeses pieces. That’d be an adequate breakfast, right? ;)

    I too love peanut butter. I should really bake with it more; it’s so versatile. You have some yummy looking goodies here and have inspired me to make something with peanut butter :)


    • Sallyreplied on June 12th, 2012 at 10:23 am

      PB is my #1! I hope you make a delicious pie or cake with it sometime Laura! :)

    I like how you roll Sally. You want to try something different up this glorious alley, maybe play with coming up with a Peanut Butter Cake Ball. I’ve tried them a few ways and there’s just no way you don’t come up with something really decadent and scrumptious. You could put sprinkles on them before the chocolate coating dries!


    • Sallyreplied on June 12th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

      Thanks Gary! PB Cake Balls covered in sprinkles… now you’re talking’! Sounds like heaven!

    Gosh darn, you sound just like my baby girl who lol is 33 and totally dedicated to peanut butter. She thinks I make the best “Whole Jar peanut Butter Cookies” in the world.

    Thanks for all the links/recipes and bee-ooo-tee-full pictures!! Gonna treat em like pokemon, gotta catch and try em all.

    You may already do this but if not then you will enjoy it, I have been doing this for about 50 of my long tooth years…. I love to take a big glob of peanut butter and stir in quite a bit of white Karo syrup, then put it on saltine crackers as a snack, that and ice cream were my go to after school snacks. It is also something I do for breakfast on my biscuits instead of jelly!!!


    • Sallyreplied on June 18th, 2012 at 6:31 am

      Hi there! No, I haven’t ever mixed peanut butter with Karo syrup! But that sounds like it would be amazing on saltine crackers.. salty and sweet is my favorite. I am definitely dedicated to peanut butter :)

    I am looking for an old receipe that contained peanut butter, white Karo syrup, powdered sugar and you rolled this out and cut into pieces. Can you help?


    • Sallyreplied on June 20th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

      Hi Elizabeth – I have no idea which recipe you are referring to. I don’t have any like that on my website.
