Peanut Butter Lovers Day

The first day of March will delight Peanut Butter Lovers. National Peanut Butter Lover's day is a sticky sort of day with lots of lovers to celebrate their favorite choice of peanut butter spread. We often send our kid out the door with a PB & J and right we are as PB offers great protein to keep them going. Peanut butter can be enjoyed on toast, crackers, and celery as well as in a variety of great recipes. 

Ever thought about playing with peanut butter?? Well when you make play dough from peanut butter you can do just that

Edible Play Dough
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup honey
Mix up, play with like playdough  

Another quick recipe that will be great for supper or to take to the next picnic or potluck check out this recipe for no bake PB pie

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 deep dish graham cracker or chocolate flavored crust
whipped topping
chocolate syrup
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. Mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Slowly add milk and mix well. Fold in whipped topping. Pour into pie crust and cover. Freeze for at least 30 minutes. Pipe extra whipped topping around edge of pie. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
and yet another delicious treat that you can try is these St. Patricks Day Peanut Butter Irish Buckeyes

Irish Buckeyes

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 bag white chocolate chips
green food coloring
(mini chocolate chips are optional)

Mix the peanut butter and butter until creamy, then mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla. You can also add mini chocolate chips here too, if you've got to have that chocolate fix!  Roll into balls and place on a sheet covered with wax paper.  Melt white chips and stir in desired amount of food coloring.  Using a toothpick, dip balls in melted mixture and let harden on wax paper.  You can use almond bark for this too, if you'd like, but something funky always happens to my almond bark when I add food coloring and they just don't turn out as nice.
