Happy National Peanut Butter Day 2012

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 ;)

My secret, I mean, my normal peanut butter stash ;)

Now, obviously today is the day placing peanut butter on a pedestal – Here are some amazing peanut butter desserts which blow me away:

And more! Obviously I am a peanut butter obsessed little girl :D (but only in desserts or sandwiches… mmmmmm)

Unwrapping of the peanut butter cup!

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.

Your ultimate goal in the end…

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!

One bite will kill you…

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 :D

Perfectly baked peanut butter candy peanut butter cookie :D

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 :)

Cross section cut :) – Can you see the gooey peanut butter in the middle?

Anybody want to come over and try some? ;)
Enjoy and devour my friends!

PART 1: Peanut Butter Golden Banana Soft Serve
Source: Choc Chip Uru

Ultimate result!

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 tsp lemon/citric juice (orange also works)
  • 2 heaping tbs peanut butter
  • 1-2 tbs golden syrup
  • 5 tbs crushed sundae peanuts

Frozen stiff!

Method

  1. Mix lemon juice and bananas until well coated and freeze overnight
  2. Let sit out for 15 minutes at room temperature
  3. Place in a food processor and add in peanut butter and golden syrup

    Swirls of syrup!

  4. Whiz until smooth soft serve consistency

    Mmmmm…

  5. Stir through peanuts
  6. Refreeze until needed (let sit 10-15 min at room temperature before serving for easier scooping)

Note

  • 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)

Part 2: Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Surprise Peanut Butter M&M One Person Cookie
Source: Adapted from Picky Palate

The inner mechanisms of this cookie :D

Ingredients

  • 20g butter, melted
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 1/2 tbs lightly beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 tbs heaping peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbs plain flour, sifted
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbs Peanut butter M&Ms + reserved 4-5 extra
  • 1 regular sized Reese’s peanut butter cup

One big fat crusty bite!

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Mix butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and peanut butter till smooth consistency
  3. Stir in flour and baking soda till few streaks remain
  4. Stir in 3 tbs of M&Ms
  5. Mould dough into a small circle and press peanut butter cup into it – wrap around the candy

    Guess what’s inside ;)

  6. Place onto baking sheet and press reserved extra M&Ms on top

    A little extra love (you have no idea, how many M&Ms which were consumed during making this…)

  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until edges are golden and cookie is cooked through
  8. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before letting cool completely on a wire rack/eating molten with ice cream

Notes:

  • This is utterly decadent and unhealthy :)
  • To make this a chocolate cookie version, use 4 1/2 tbs plain flour and 1 1/2 tbs cocoa powder

Part 3: Assembly

Necessities

Method

  1. Place cookie, warmed if necessary, on a plate
  2. Place a huge huge huge scoop of soft serve on top
  3. Drizzle with sauces

    You know which sauce follows…

  4. Thank whoever or whatever you believe in for National Peanut Butter Day
  5. Top with crushed sundae peanuts
  6. Devour. Do not share. Transcend to heaven :)

  3. Love this post! That peanut butter candy peanut butter cookie looks heavenly! I didn’t like peanut butter when I was young, but then one day, in college, that all changed and now I can’t get enough. I love the flavor, texture and aroma! And I love making banana soft serve…I have never tried it with peanut butter added. Definitely going to now!

    • Thank you so much my friend :D
      This is definitely for PB lovers all round – and you should make 2 just because you have catching up to do :P
      Enjoy!

      Cheers

    I had no idea. Really. And I love peanut butter. In fact, we had the best peanut butter bread pudding (which I am going to try to replicate) with chocolate sauce at dinner out last night. Pretty amazing stuff. Thanks for alerting me to this most important holiday!

    • Well I am definitely glad you know about this day now :D
      And you indirectly celebrated it by eating what sounds like a very delicious dish :P
      Can’t wait to see your recipe for it!

      Cheers

    You are too adorable. I love your enthusiasm, zest for life (and baking of course) and your crazy obsession with chocolate and peanut butter. Yuuuuuummmmm!!!!

    • My pleasure my friend – and thanks for such kind words :D
      If you are going to celebrate a food day, go to the full extent I would say!
      Glad you visited!

  7. I didn’t know it was PB day. Everyday is some kind of food day – wonder how people know about it… anyway, wow you must love PB! I like nutella better if I have a choice of PB or Nutella…but I enjoy anything sweets anyway. :-)

    • I often find out from other blogs actually – I guess if you type into google, ‘food days’, you are right, something will come everyday :D
      And I am with you Nutella is king but PB is one very ferocious and competitive queen :D
      And I love all sweets just like you (I have totally made that unobvious ;))

      Cheers

    Peanut Butter Day. Now that is a fabulous idea…I didn’t know it existed. I will mark this on my calendar for next year. Your peanut butter cookie with M & Ms and peanut butter cups look divine!

    • I know right? That is exactly what I thought the first time I saw the national commemoration on another blog – and thank you very much my friend (though I hope you don’t have to wait till next year to meet and eat this dish :D)

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Haha, imagine how I felt after eating it (nothing some solid dance didn’t fix ;))
      And as for the lowly peanut, it certainly has risen a nice way hasn’t it thanks to the addition of butter :D
      Gotta love it – thanks for stopping by :)

      Cheers

  12. If there’s anything that I love almost as much as, equally as much as… no, more than… chocolate, it is peanut butter. How can you do this to me?! I’m salivating, practically slobbering, just reading today’s blog entry and looking at the photos.

    • Haha, I am sorry my friend but I was itching to show the world a creation of PB overload – I am sure if you make it you will forgive me ;)
      Awesome hardcore peanut butter loving my friend and enjoy!

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Haha, trust me, I refuse to make a treat like this out of vegemite so PB will have to do ;)

    It’s a massive peanut butter attack everyone take cover! That is so i can steal all your peanut butter goodness; I LOVE Peanut Butter and tend to eat it straight outta the jar by the spoonful!

    • Haha, you can’t fool me, I am the one attacking you all with PB overloads :D

  15. Well I certainly am not going to wait for another national peanut butter day to enjoy all these elements you have pulled together in this dessert. Candy in cookies are the best addition I can think of to peanut butter cookies and the ice cream is over the top. Decadent but oh so delicious!

  16. Suzanne says:

    Wow you really know how to celebrate peanut butter day! I’m wishing I had one of those cookies right now with the homemade banana peanut butter ice cream!

    • Thanks my friend – I pride myself on going all out for festivity days :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • So glad you didn’t miss such a sacred day ;)
      Thanks so much – and you are definitely, right this is one evil huge addictively delicious cookie monster :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  17. Yum!

    I made the best (and easiest) chocolate PB cookies this past weekend: 1 box chocolate cake mix, 1 egg, 1 stick of butter, 2 cups chocolate chips, 25 crushed mini Reese’s cups.

    • Thanks my friend – and I am sorry about the cravings because I ate the spare pb cup up while the cookie was baking… oops ;)
      Glad you enjoyed this :D

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Haha, nice one – I actually did have to physically do extra exercise :P (oh the price of food blogging ;))
      And you are definitely right about the death by peanut butter (in a good way :D)
      Glad you enjoyed this!

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

  18. Ohh i didn’t know it was peanut butter day ;) But i’m not really a fan i’m totally nuts about nuts but not so ‘nuts’ about peanut butter hehe ~ thanks for sharing these recipes though! I still love to try! I’m a strange one i LOVE Peanut butter M&Ms!!!

    • Haha, you learn something new everyday – And I know what you mean, I love PB like crazy (no doubt) but on toast – gross :P
      I am sure this recipe will suit both non and pro peanut butter lovers though :D – especially if you are addicted to peanut m&ms ;)
      Glad you dropped by my friend!

      Cheers
      Choc Chip Uru

    • Thanks (I really believe M&Ms are one of the most beautifying ingredients ever :D)
      And I am glad you enjoyed this decadent dessert as much as the others – I truly appreciate it :)
