We get WIC with the kids and I have so many jars of peanutbutter that I need to come up with something to do with it. I have about a dozen jars or more of peanutbutter in my cabinet. They give you a lot and I can only eat so many peanutbutter sandwiches.

So I was thinking peanutbutter cookies, peanutbutter fudge, peanutbutter anything. If you have recipes I could use them!

Hey Patty I Know exactly how you feel LOL that is why I been doing some researching myself on what to do with peanut butter LOL
Well, my main reason of coming to this board was to share this recipe that I just love! My Mom has made these cookies since I was a and I just love them! They are called chocolate no bake cookies No oven and easy to do. And peanut butter is an ingredient . Kids love them and most of all they are healthy! (btw I like this site for other ideas too).

Other sticky peanut ideas:
1."Jello No Bakes" has a peanut butter/chocolate cake (easy and good)

2. Peanut butter pie with the graham cracker crust? (not to hard)

3. Peanut butter brittle candy?

4. "Ants on a log"? Celery with peanut butter inside (the scoop) with rasins on top (the ants- lol) -the only way I will eat raisins and celery LOL

5. P and J sandwiches

6. Well you are pregnant now so how about using Peanut butter and chocolate/fudge over ice cream? LOL

Well I hope some of those ideas will get you started. And if you still have leftover peanut butter and don't know what to do with it- if you have or feed birds they love peanut butter as well. ;-)

Buckeyes:

I never use a recipe for this; I just mix and match until I get it the way I like, so sorry about the lack of precise amounts

Peanut butter
honey
powdered sugar
chocolate chips

Mix together peanut butter, a few tablespoons of honey, and about 1/4 C powdered sugar (really depends on how sweet you like it, and how much PB you use!) Freeze it for a couple of hours.

In the microwave or double boiler (I just use two nestling pots and fill the larger one with water and the smaller one with the chocolate, and put the small one on top of the big one- just be carful that you don't get any water in the chocolate or it will ruin it!) melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently. Chocolate doesn't lose its shape when it melts, so only microwave it for a few seconds at a time and stir it. Burnt chocolate smells really bad, so be careful! Take the peanut butter out of the freezer and roll it into a ball. Dip the ball into the melted chocolate. If the peanut butter starts to get soft, put if back in the freezer.

Place the buckeyes in the freezer for about a half hour or until the chocolate hardens!

If you don't have the patience for the buckeyes, an easier variation is to put the peanutbutter mixture in cupcake pans (spray it with cooking oil first!) and then pour the chocolate on the peanutbutter, and then freeze it like that.

EASY Peanut butter fudge


2c sugar
1c milk (*I* use skim, so it's not as fattening, hehe... it's good with cream, or whole milk, or evaporated milk, too, though.)
dash salt


2TBSP butter or margarine
2/3 c peanut butter
1tsp vanilla (or almond) flavoring


Bring first three ingredients to a boil, stirring often. Continue to boil, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage (this is where you drop a bit in ice-cold water and can make it form a ball while in the water, but when it's brought up out of the water, it flattens to your fingers). Remove from heat. I usually leave it on the heat for about 45 seconds after it reaches the soft ball stage when I use skim milk. Add butter, peanut butter, and vanilla and stir. Keep stirring until the mixture becomes somewhat thickened (and partially cooled). Pour into a buttered [glass is best] 8x8 pan. Allow to cool completely. Fudge will set as it sits. Cut and ENJOY after it's completely cooled.

This is yummy stuff, so be careful not to eat the whole pan yourself Tempting as it is.
