July 22, 2014

Let's practice analogies: peanut butter is to the United States what Nutella is to Italy.  Whether you prefer your peanut butter from the jar or homemade, you more than likely have some of the caramel brown spread in your pantry.  While you can definitely enjoy your peanut butter by the spoonful, it's wonderful in desserts - especially when paired with chocolate.  These ridiculously easy dessert recipes are just a few ways you can eat peanut butter without jelly.
