Sweet Peanut Butter Spread

This is so much more than peanut butter…

Sweet Peanut Butter Spread

I have big plans for this stuff in future recipes.  My husband just loves peanut butter.  He really loves making peanut butter and honey sandwiches at night as a sweet treat.  He used to love Nutella, but vegans can’t eat it and it’s not all that healthy anyway.  This is the peanut butter version of Nutella.  It would also make a great peanut butter fudge if left to chill in the fridge.  It could be used as a healthier alternative to frosting as well.  It would be delicious for the filling of my Thumbprint Cookies.  Heck, you can even sit there and eat it as is, which is what I did.  Ooops, did I say that allowed?  Warning….this is highly addictive.
