They Go Together Like... [fill in the blank]

Peanut Butter, Banana, Chocolate & Coffee
Peanut butter, banana, chocolate & coffee. Four regular residents in my kitchen. Sometimes they like to be on their own, but they always love getting together when they can and seem to truly enjoy each other's company. They're good friends. They bring out the best in each other by being supportive, encouraging, and complimentary. With so many different and delicious ways to combine them, where does one start?

Start here... How To Make Homemade Peanut Butter (Joy The Baker) and make your own peanut butter from honey roasted peanuts... that's right, honey roasted peanut butter. Pure genius. How could I not try it? The honey roasted peanuts were cheaper than the plain ones after all, and I'm all about saving money. It is, incidentally, by the way, and in fact, fantastically tasty. Is making peanut butter from scratch cost effective? Not sure. Math was not one of my strongest subjects, especially when trying to compare weights and volumes, but if you can find peanuts that are at a really good price... go for it. At least you'll know what is and (maybe more importantly) what isn't in your peanut butter. O.k.? Now, go work through the following two lists of recipes...

Blended, Fizzed & Spiked:
Swirled, Tarted & Baked:
* The list of ingredients is all run together, but it's pretty easy to figure out. worth a try anyway!
** I actually made this Chocolate Peanut butter Tart about 7 years ago. I even bought the cool skinny rectangular tart pan especially. The tart was delicious, but I lost the bottom part of the cool skinny pan during a move. Haven't been able to justify buying another one. But I will... one day.
