Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping

                                                                 mmm mmm MMM!

A couple of weeks ago our church family enjoyed an ice cream social and I decided to take along some peanut butter topping. My husbands favourite sundae at Friendly's is the Peanut Butter Cup one. I've tried to imitate it in the past and never quite achieved the texture that I wanted, so after doing some more research I found this recipe here. The texture is perfect and the flavor is delicious! I wanted to increase the recipe so that I would have plenty to share at the social, hahaha, however! I ended up with WAY more than I expected! So after serving it and giving some away and freezing some I was still looking for ways to use what I still had. So here are a few things we have enjoyed that are made with it:





all of which are totally delicious!

and here is the recipe:

½ cup half and half
3 Tablespoons sugar
¼ cup light Karo syrup
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup creamy peanut butter

Combine all ingredients (except peanut butter) in a saucepan stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.

Let the mixture cool completely then add the peanut butter and stir well.

Stir until smooth.

this supposedly serves 2


Be Blessed!
