This past Christmas I made brownies with peanut butter chips inside and put a peanut butter icing on top.  My bil went crazy over them.  Chocolate and peanut butter is a huge favorite in our family.

I love peanut butter fudge, made with peanut butter morsels and sweetened condensed milk.

My favorite peanut butter is JIF extra crunchy. I love it on French toast and waffles with syrup, in a sandwich with jelly.

I love peanut butter.  I eat it at least once each week.  But peanut butter is good for more than just flavor.

Peanut butter is relatively high in protein and is less expensive than many other protein sources.  Its also high calorie.  The food banks love to get it.  (For outside the US - food banks are charities that provide food to low-income and no-income households.)  The processed stuff keeps well.  It is normally eaten without being cooked.  Its great to have on hand when a storm takes out the power for a few days.

When Honey Girl gets bored with a plain rawhide stick, I'll smear regular PB on it.  By the time she's gotten all the PB off, the rawhide is softened and she'll get into a good chew.  Honey Girl has her own PB jar so I don't worry about dog hair getting in our gourmet PB.


When my lab Temperance was a pup  and  a Tasmanian devil in a dog suit I used to  fill her kong with dog biscuits and peanut butter and put it in the freezer. I'd give it to her when I was at my wits end to give myself ten minutes of peace.

We buy peanut butter at Sam's Club (a warehouse store where you have to have a membership and everything is sold in bulk) and I can barely keep enough in the house.  All the kids eat it, sometimes for both breakfast and lunch.  And a snack.  On toast, on crackers, in a sandwich, sometimes just a spoonful. 

I don't really eat it, but I do love peanut butter based desserts.  My peanut butter pie is amazing.

Yes, a spoonful of peanut butter and a spoonful of nutella is an excellent meal for my 4-year-old.  She needs calories and it actually takes a while to eat and she is happy.  If I could get some broccoli in there it would be the perfect small child meal. 
Sam's sells Nutella too.

My kids used to eat brocolli with peanut sauce... Peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, and oil. I'd cook the brocolli and chop then stir in the sauce. If serving as a meal, I'd add noodles.

Hello, my name is Dazi and I'm a peanut butter addict.  :P

Seriously,  I eat PB every single day.  I love the stuff.  It's great on slices of bananas, apples, celery, or just a spoon.  My favorite though, disgusts most people, PB with bread and butter pickles.

I also enjoy chicken and broccoli/with or without other vegetables with peanut sauce (I use cococut aminos in place of the soy sauce since I'm allergic to soy).

I was browsing MSN this am and there was an article talking about things that folks who aren't from the U.S. find odd about us. The obsession with peanut butter was the first thing on the list.  :D

Now you can get powdered peanut butter. Just add water.

I love crunchy PB!  I eat it straight from the jar with a spoon.  PB&J with strawberry jam on toasted wheat bread with Ruffles potato chips in the middle is still my favorite sandwich (weird I know, picked it up from my dad).

Earlier in this thread I posted a link to a recipe I submitted for the cookbook project, but here is a much more exact version:

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cereal Bars

1 cup peanut butter (standard type; do not use organic)
1 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 standard bag plain M&Ms* or Reese's Pieces
6 cups chocolate cereal (Cocoa Pebbles is best)

Melt peanut butter and chips over low heat, stirring constantly with wooden spoon to prevent burning.  When fully melted, remove from heat and slowly add the candy.  The first ones will crack from the heat, but don't worry about it.  Add the cereal and stir in a cup at a time.

Line a plastic rectangular container with wax paper, place cereal mixture in and press firmly in place with a square spatula.  You want this tightly packed to minimize crumbs later.  Refrigerate for 4-6 hours before cutting into bars.

The creator of this recipe is not responsible for broken diets.

Additional:

*Do not use mini M&Ms; they crack too easily.  Do not refrigerate the candy before use.  For flavors the milk and dark chocolate versions are best.  I haven't tried using the Peanut or Almond versions but if anyone tries it please tell us if it worked well.

Cocoa Pebbles has the highest cocoa content of any current chocolate cereal.  Malt-o-Meal's Chocolate Dyno-Bites are the "milk chocolate" version of CP.  The next time I do these I will mix those two together to see how that works.

Now that I'm gluten free, I really miss peanut butter!

Sure, I could spread it on gluten-free toast, but it's just not the same.

I've been on a gluten free diet for awhile now. I still eat PB just about everyday.  I have it with apples, bananas,  or celery...or with a spoon. 😉
