I went on a blog once. I saw an ingredient commemoration day. And I was gone. Now I know that there is National Pancake Day, National S’mores Day, National Ice Cream MONTH!
A very cute idea that, being the patriotic food lover I am, I simply must assist in
Now, obviously today is the day placing peanut butter on a pedestal – Here are some amazing peanut butter desserts which blow me away:
- Peanut Butter Frosted Rich Chocolate Mudcake
- Flourless, Butterless Peanut Butter Cookies
- Peanut Butter Ganached Peanut Butter Swirled Brownies
- Elvis Oreo Peanut Butter Black Bottom Cupcakes
- Ultimate Peanut Butter Hot Fudge Sundae
And more! Obviously I am a peanut butter obsessed little girl (but only in desserts or sandwiches… mmmmmm)
Well today is a school day – I am in my olive skirt right now as I type and really, I do have a mini maths test tomorrow so I can’t exactly churn out a huge cake or even a batch of cookies.
But what I can do is make one giant cookie. And serve it with some ice cream all hot and fudgy out of the oven.
Warning: Please brace yourself for hot molten peanut butter extravagance
My dinner on Peanut Butter Day – A giant one person Peanut butter M&M studded peanut butter cookie wrapped around a Reese’s peanut butter cup, served hot out of the oven with 5 min Peanut Butter Golden Syrup Banana Soft Serve, drizzled with hot peanut butter fudge sauce laced with caramel, topped with extra crushed peanuts!
How many times did I say ‘peanut butter’? 5 – THERE ARE 5 SOURCES OF PEANUT BUTTER DELICIOUSNESS IN THIS ONE PERSON DESSERT AND 6 SOURCES OF PEANUTS OVERALL
How could it be possible? I made a 6 chocolate source muffin – believe me, it is so possible
A perfect commemoration for peanut butter, this is the perfect after school extravagance! Peanut butter is literally flying at you from all directions in each heavenly bite as the soft serve’s creaminess melts with the hot fudge which coats the moist cookie.
And then when you hit the cookie middle and the gooey Reese’s peanut butter cup is revealed, one simply dies. I am not even kidding, it is pure ecstasy
Anybody want to come over and try some?
Enjoy and devour my friends!

- 1-2 tbs golden syrup
- 5 tbs crushed sundae peanuts
- Mix lemon juice and bananas until well coated and freeze overnight
- Let sit out for 15 minutes at room temperature
- Place in a food processor and add in peanut butter and golden syrup
- Whiz until smooth soft serve consistency
- Stir through peanuts
- Refreeze until needed (let sit 10-15 min at room temperature before serving for easier scooping)
- This is the health-ier part of this dish…
- If want to make chocolate, add in some melted chocolate or 2 tbs cocoa powder (increase syrup to 2 tbs definitely and add 1 more tbs peanut butter)
