1. Peanut Butter-Nutella Coffee Cake
Roasted peanuts add a salty crunch to this delectable combination of peanut butter and chocolate. We love a slice alongside a steaming mug of coffee, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream never hurt anyone!
Think of this as a giant, sophisticated take on a peanut butter cup. A decadent peanut butter mousse, studded with roasted, salted peanuts, tops a bittersweet ganache base and a chocolate cookie crust. This pie will grant all your peanut-loving wishes.
This cake combines salty peanuts, sweet raspberry preserves, and a drizzle of peanut butter for an all new version of our favorite lunch box staple.
4. Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies
Maryanne Cabrera (@littleepicurean) of the blog The Little Epicurean shares one of her favorite peanut butter cookies. Dipped in melted dark chocolate and topped with chopped honey-roasted peanuts, these cookies are a decadent treat.
5. Vegan Peanut Butter Waffles with Chocolate Ganache, Curry-Banana Ice Cream, and Miso Caramel
Kate Jacoby of Philadelphia’s renowned vegetable restaurant, Vedge, created a vegan version of these waffles that she spotted on a trip to Hong Kong by using tapioca starch instead of egg. It’s sweet and savory, with bittersweet ganache, umami-inflected miso caramel, and banana ice cream with fragrant curry spices Kate calls a savory envelope that carries the rich fruit flavor.
