Everything Tastes Better with Peanut Butter!

Okay, not everything, but I am a peanut butter lover. It's one of those things I have to ration because--you know--calories, but I have been known to just open a jar of peanut butter, take out a heaping teaspoonful and eat peanut butter that way. Plain. No embellishments.

That said, someone posted a recipe video the other day for Oreo Peanut Butter Brownie Cupcakes that look delicious (extremely fattening, I'm sure, but delicious). So that set me off on a search for other peanut butter desserts. If you're a peanut butter lover, too, here are a few of the ones I found.

Click through to the video on YouTube for the written instructions.

My mother makes a version of these peanut butter balls at Christmas. Fights have been known to break out when the supply gets low.
These are also called buckeye balls, and there are a number of versions. I have no idea which version my mother makes (shame on me!), but I doubt the one above is it, since it uses almond flour. Some use graham cracker crumbs or crushed crispy cereal. Here's one that uses none of those (and may be closest to my mom's masterpiece). 

And let's not forget cheesecake. These use Ritz crackers, but I'm sure there are a number of butter cracker brands that could be substituted.

I chose the videos here, because they were fast and easy to understand, but if you clicked through, you might have noticed that they came from the Tasty Desserts and also the Love Food channels. Both of those have more videos, if you enjoyed these.

So...peanut butter lover or not?

Have a great day!
