National Peanut Butter Day!

If you haven’t already heard, today is National Peanut Butter Day! In honor of such a glorious day, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite recipes using such a gloriously creamy spread. Maybe you’ll celebrate by grabbing a spoon and eating a nice spoonful of peanut butter straight off the spoon. Maybe you’ll be adventurous and add some chocolate chips to it. Or maybe you’ll be so crazy and bake something! In that case, here are some of the recipes I have made, and some that I have bookmarked because I’m dying to make them.

Chocolate Cupcakes with a Peanut Butter Frosting

This is one of my favorite cupcakes now. The frosting really is the perfect compliment to the rich chocolate cake.

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies with a Milk Chocolate Filling

Mini little peanut butter and chocolate sandwich cookies! Seriously, these disappeared so fast there weren’t any left to take pictures later on. They’re quite addictive too, so beware!

Tagalongs — The Novice Chef

Tagalongs are my absolute FAVORITE Girl Scout cookie. Every year I buy about 6 boxes and hide them from myself so I can savor them, otherwise I will literally eat a box a day until they’re gone and I’m licking the packaging. Finding this recipe on Jessica’s blog was like a dream come true! Tagalongs year round? Uhh, yes please.

Do I even need to say anything about this picture? I don’t think so either.

Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Donuts — Stan’s Donuts, Westwood Village, CA.

Lastly, if you’re on the Westside (Los Angeles Westside that is) you should take a detour and stop into Stan’s Donuts and get a Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Donut. If you don’t have time to bake something up yourself, this really is the ultimate PB Celebration in your mouth.

Go enjoy some Peanut Butter!
