By Cooking Panda

January 23, 2017, is National Peanut Butter Day, and we want to make sure you are prepared.

We can’t stop singing peanut butter’s praises. Smooth or crunchy, we love it all. Cheap, healthy, filling and rich in flavor, peanut butter is the bomb. While it’s pretty tempting to just eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon (nobody’s going to stop you!) or smear it on a PB&J sandwich, we want to remind you that there is so much more you can do with the creamy spread. Take a peak at some of our favorite sweet and savory peanut butter recipes:

1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles

We want to ride off into the sunset with these amazing (and EASY) truffles that are sweet, savory, salty and filling. We might just turn these into dinner one night. Don’t tell anyone.

2. Loaded Chicken Satay French Fries

If you love poutine and peanut butter, you’ll fall head over heels in love with these loaded fries and never look back.

3. Fool’s Gold Loaf

There’s a good reason why this giant multi-pound sandwich comes with the disclaimer to “eat at your own risk.” But whether you’re feeling marathon-status hungry or maybe looking to slice it up and share with a group, you honestly cannot go wrong taste-wise with this sweet-savory jackpot that’s fit for a king … or The King, we should say.

4. Peanut Butter Cup Martini

Wash down your peanut butter feast with this sweet, richly flavored vodka cocktail that has the most intense chocolate flavors. The perfect boozy dessert!

5. Fried Peanut Butter Crescent Bombs

That’s right. All you have to do is freeze a bunch of peanut butter balls, wrap them up in Crescent rolls and fry them! Bam! You have a super creamy, luxurious treat. PS you can totally bake them instead, if you prefer. Just follow the guidelines on your dough package.

6. Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches

Peanut butter cookies are a classic. Add an air of sophistication with a hint of bright rosemary and smoked sea salt that go perfectly with this marionberry (or blackberry, if you’d rather) ice cream. Talk about taking peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to a whole new level.

7. XL Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cup

This ginormous take on your favorite candy is everything you could want and more, in the most ridiculously extravagant form possible. What’s not to love?

8. Peanut Butter Beef Carnitas With Mango Salsa

We absolutely adore these tender carnitas, braised in a thick, sweet, spicy peanut butter red curry. Smear it on a slice of crunchy bread and sprinkle sour mango salsa on top for a dinner that will totally blow you away!
