All of us should be thankful for this amazing ingredient we have in our pantries all the time-”Peanut butter” 😉 . If one is creative enough, we can whip up so much with this creamy delicious peanut butter- Peanut butter on toast, Peanut butter on bananas, Peanut butter pancakes and of course Peanut butter desserts.

It has been a ritual for my cousins who stay abroad to bring Reese’s Peanut butter cups for me whenever they visit us. And now that they are easily available in India, I don’t have to use them so judiciously :P.
Having made these earlier- Peanut butter cake with caramel filling, Chocolate and peanut butter swirl bark, Chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter centers, Chocolate and peanut butter swirl cake, I wanted something very unconventional this time.
