I saw a pin for Amish Peanut Butter floating around Pinterest. It caught my eye because I love peanut butter. This spread is super easy to make. The hardest part of making this is waiting on it to cool off! I thought this tasted similar to a Fluffernutter. Next time I might add a pinch of cinnamon to the mixture. I think that would be great!
This is great for a quick breakfast, dessert or even an after school snack. I liked the spread on a piece of bread or toast. My friend Michele preferred this straight out of the jar! Either way, this is a treat not to be missed!
