Happy National Peanut Butter Lover's Day!

This day almost slipped by me without any acknowledgement of National Peanut Butter Lover's Day!  I just was made aware that this day even existed, and I sure wish I had known yesterday!  I totally would have made something in honor of this day, trust me.  But maybe it's for the best in light of the fact that I am still earnestly trying to part with the extra padding I gained over the winter of no running.  Peanut butter desserts rank right up at the top for me, as long as it's combined with chocolate.  Here I go again, getting my tummy to rumble at the mere typing of things I adore.

So, I looked my way through these fabulous recipes, and thought I needed to highlight them.  Mostly for me to refer back to in the near future when I need a fix.  Like tomorrow.  I'm kidding.  Maybe.

But just look at these beautiful little things:

I mean really now.

And this is another that caught my eye and my heart.

Yeah, you caught me.  It's the same one.  But that's how much I am falling for this.  I showed Alex the recipe and he suggested doing the same thing with Oreos.  Hmmm.  And now I'm wondering about half Oreos and half Nutter Butters?  Oh, I think I may have do some experimenting...

So, be a sport.  At the very minimum, grab yourself a spoon and get yourself a lick of peanut butter.  After all, it IS National Peanut Butter Lover's Day!


  1. Yup, you can use Oreos. I have a recipe for that called Oreo truffles and they are really good!

  2. ok, yum, yum, don't you love "pioneer woman" the things they come up with!

  3. I didn't know, but I had a piece of toast with crunch peanut butter for breakfast this morning. When they have snickers blizzard day that is what I'm having for breakfast too. What do you think?

  4. This reminds me of that amazingly delicious peanutbutter,nutela stuff you made at Entiatt! I can't remeber what you called it, but it was AMAZING!
