My love for peanut butter

Chocolate peanut butter fudge

Okay so as well as my love for pulled pork sandwiches, I love peanut butter. I like it sweet, I like it savoury, I like it crunchy, I like it smooth, I like it all!

If you follow my boards on pinterest then you probably have already noticed this, as I have a board dedicated to all things peanut butter. And judging by the tweets and messages I have received from some of you out there, you guys feel the same.

I thought I would share some of my favourite p.b. picks from the world wide web in case you have had enough of soft white bread sandwiches spread with softened butter and a layer of peanut butter spread so thick it sticks to the top of your mouth. Oh who am I kidding, you could never get sick of that! But here are some other ways you might like to try it.
