If you’re anything like us, adding peanut butter to just about anything makes it better. Read on for nine amazing recipes that will help you achieve peanut butter perfection!

No. 1: Stephanie Izard's Football-Appropriate Sundae

Chef Stephanie Izard tops her sundae with a beer and orange peel-infused toffee, a homemade peanut butter brittle, and a pretzel whipped cream! Yum!

No. 2: Kayla Itsines’ Peanut Butter Protein Bars

If you want a deletably peanut buttery-snack without the guilt, try these protein-packed delicious bars, which are free of added sugar and feature nuts, quinoa and dates. Nothing to feel bad about there!

No. 3: Grant’s Peanut Butter Pretzel Skillet Brownies

 

A brownie with peanut butter and pretzels? It’s a salty-sweet dream! Using store-brought brownie mix, Grant simply adds peanut butter and pretzels. Then, he cooks it in a cast-iron skillet. What could possibly be easier?

No. 4: Fluffernutter Truffles

This is a perfect recipe to make with kids because they can get their hands dirty! Simply add peanut butter cookies, marshmallows, marshmallow cream, and a full cup or peanut butter into a food processor. Roll them up into balls and for an extra touch, dip them in melted chocolate.

No. 5: Christopher Kimball's Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

These peanut butter sandwich cookies feature peanut-on-peanut with both peanut butter cookies AND peanut butter filling.

No. 6: No-Bake Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

This recipe couldn’t be easier, or more of a crowd-pleaser. Just take buttery crackers and make peanut butter sandwiches. Then, dip in melted milk chocolate. Yum!

No. 7: Kelsey Nixon's Chocolate Peanut Butter Tart

This inventive recipe starts with a crust made from peanut butter cookies! The delish cookie crust is filled with a peanut butter-chocolate pudding, and then garnished with crushed peanuts. Amazing!

No. 8: Sunny Anderson's Peanut Butter Oats Granola Cookies

If you’re looking to make a peanut butter dessert on the healthier side, Sunny’s cookies are for you. And these cookies only have two ingredients – ground oats and chunky peanut butter!

No. 9: Buddy Valastro's Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

These cupcakes live up to their name, being very similar to a peanut butter cup. Buddy takes chocolate cupcakes and injects peanut butter frosting into the middle, then frosts the top with more peanut butter topping.
