The Friday Five: All Things Peanut Butter

If you’ve been reading along for awhile, you know that peanut butter is my favorite thing in the world. Straight from the jar? Awesome. Mixed with chocolate? Even better.

Since I have never, ever been disappointed by peanut butter, I usually pin or bookmark any recipe with it in the title without even reading it. At the rate I’m accumulating recipes, it would probably take me about six months of daily baking to get through them all.

I recently sorted through my stash of peanut butter-centric recipes in an attempt to narrow things down and here are a few that I hope to get around to trying sooner rather than later:

Double Chocolate Loaf with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Spread (via Baked Perfection): Excellent idea for a weekend breakfast.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart with Pretzel Crust (via Hot Polka Dot): You can never go wrong with the sweet/salty combo.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes (via Martha Stewart): I’ll probably make these with grape jelly since I prefer it over strawberry.

Peanut Butter Filled Brownie Cookie Sandwiches (via Blue-Eyed Bakers): Chester’s two favorite desserts are brownies and cookies, so I’m always on the lookout for new ideas.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Macarons (via The Bite Sized Baker): I’ve been wanting to make macarons ever since we went to France, and now that I have a food scale I have not excuse not to tackle them.

I can’t be the only one with an obsession with peanut butter, right? How do you get your fix?

Public Service Announcement: There is a peanut butter recall going on right now. So, before you make these or other tasty peanut butter treats, check your pantry and make sure you don’t have any of the products on the list. M’kay? Thankfully, Jif seems safe for now.
