10 Peanut Butter Treats for National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day

by on March 1, 2010 · 11 comments

One of Todd’s co-workers has a peanut allergy and can’t eat a lot of the goodies I send to work. Over the weekend, I started feeling bad about the situation and planned on making a special peanut butter free treat just for her. Then wouldn’t you know it?   I find out today’s National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.

Looks like the peanut-free treat will have to be postponed. Happy National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! 

Here are some of my favorite peanut butter treats.

Bobby Flay’s Peanut butter Caramel Swirled Brownies were a hit at Todd’s office last week.   If you haven’t made them, they’d be perfect for this very important holiday. 

If you like the idea of peanut butter in brownies but want to skip the caramel, try Marbled Peanut Butter Brownies.

Or how about a basic Peanut Butter Criss-Cross Cookie? This is the recipe I always use and sometimes I add chipotle powder.

And then there’s this peanut butter cookie which is packed with candy. I made a batch for my friend Tina when she was sick and called them Get Well Soon Cookies. You can call them whatever you want.

Lake Travis Mud has peanut butter and takes about 5 minutes to put together. You’ll need to chill it for 2 hours, though.  It’s insane.


How about peanut butter lava cake? This recipe was a finalist in a contest.

Peanut Butter Marshmallow Krispy Brownies start with a boxed mix which you top with a mixture of marshmallow, Rice Krispies, chocolate and peanut butter. 

It’s been a while since I made Peanut Butter Butterscotch Cookies, but they are really good.

Flourless peanut butter cookies. Let the kids make them after school.

I’ll end this list with something super-rich — Peanut Butter Fudge Crunch Bars from Rachel Ray.

I’ve made that RR recipe for peanut butter fudge crunch and it’s SOOO good. Always popular at gatherings. I don’t even like peanut butter that much and think it’s good.

Wow, what a great reason to use up my PB, really, i can’t say no to a good PB treat!

I haven’t made the Marbled P B Brownies and they look real tasty. Tomorrow is “National Banana Cream Pie Day” and Thursday is “National Pound Cake Day” so you can send something later this week sans peanut butter.

Maybe I should make something with PB instead of the chocolate chip cookies I was considering! I’ve made the Criss Cross PB cookies, the Rachel Ray bars, and the Flourless PB Cookies and they’re all good!!

The peanut butter butterscotch cookies look fantastic; anything with “butter” in the title twice must be delicious. Thanks for putting these together for those of us who consider peanut butter its own food group.
