Put Peanut Butter on It

What's your favorite dish to enhance with a smear of peanut butter? If you've been reserving your stash for PB&Js, well ... we hate to break it to you, but you've barely scratched the surface. Just imagine warm cinnamon rolls topped with a creamy-salty peanut butter glaze, or crisp puffed rice held together by marshmallow creme and smooth peanut butter. Do we have your attention now? Good.

Rice Cereal Treats

Either swirl a little peanut butter into the marshmallow mixture, or do a layer of peanut butter stacked with a layer of chocolate on top. Because why not go all-out?

Burgers

We swear this is a thing, and it’s usually served with bacon. Think of the peanut butter as a rich, delicious substitute for cheese. 

Waffles

Instead of syrup, or alongside it: Gently warm peanut butter and drizzle it over waffles topped with your favorite fruit.

Pickles

Briny, crunchy dill pickles do amazingly well with peanut butter, either in a sandwich or on their own as a snack.

Cinnamon Rolls

Who needs glaze? Spread cooled rolls with creamy peanut butter frosting instead.

Popcorn

Warm peanut butter with honey and drizzle over freshly popped popcorn for an easy at-home spin on ballpark corn.

Grilled Chicken

Stir together peanut butter, hot sauce and sesame oil for a perfect dipping sauce for grilled chicken skewers.
