10 Epic Peanut Butter Dessert Recipes Made for Peanut Butter Lovers


I’m not saying there isn’t someone out there that likes peanut butter more than me, but there’s a solid chance that no one loves peanut butter like this guy.

I could eat it every single day. Spread onto a perfect PB&J, whisked into a Thai peanut sauce or any of thousands of perfect peanut butter dessert recipes.

I love all things peanut butter. I mean, have you ever experienced the deliciousness that is peanut butter on a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg?!

No, seriously. Trust me on this one, folks. It is absolutely life changing. If you know, you know, but I digress.

All of that said, it should come at no great surprise to learn that peanut butter dessert recipes are my very favorite desserts of all.

I’ve even heard that peanut butter pie can cure sadness. While I won’t make such claims, I can attest to the fact that peanut butter can, in fact, make my day.

Have you ever seen a sad person eating a slice of chocolate peanut butter pie? No, you haven’t. Coincidence? It’s entirely possible!

(Who am I kidding? We also eat those sandwiches as adults, am I right or am I right?) Warning: When you make these brownies, childhood memories will likely come flooding back and you may even shed a tear or two. Excuse me while I go check my blood sugar levels.
