Peanut butter is a fairly new ingredient for me. I was able to source it for the first time about 2 years ago, but I loved it from the very start. Since then it seems to have become much easier to find in most supermarkets though. Lucky me that I don’t have to hunt it down online! Peanut butter is not just for sandwiches after all! Tarts, cakes, rolls, they all take advantage of the amazing taste, richness and consistency of peanut butter! Here’s a round-up of the top 5 peanut butter desserts found on Pastry Workshop. Enjoy!
Creamy filling, crisp shell, these peanut butter tarts are a delicacy. The caramel aroma is the cherry on top and brings these tarts to a whole new level of deliciousness! You won’t regret making these, especially the peanut butter mousse which I could eat all day long without feeling guilty about it.
Chocolate and peanut butter is a match made in heaven and who am I to say no to a piece of heaven in just one tiny bite?! The richness and creaminess of the peanut butter filling complements the intense chocolate taste of the brownie cookies. The two elements of this dessert could easily be served in separate ways – the cookies are delicious on their own and the peanut butter filling is amazing in cakes or other combinations too.
A chocolate sponge cake filled with peanut butter mousse then covered in a deep chocolate ganache – this is what this dessert is all about. It’s quite impressive with its beautiful design, but despite your expectations, it’s easy to make and beyond delicious!
The purpose of these pretzels is not just to add a salty taste that complements well the peanut butter, but also to add texture, creating a delicious contrast. A touch of chocolate and these cookies become tiny pastry masterpieces that you can enjoy with a cup of milk or a mug of warm tea.
Although the recipe is quite old, the cookies are delicious! These were the first cookies I ever made using peanut butter and it was love at first sight. They are crunchy, studded with chocolate chips and absolutely perfect next to a glass of warm milk or a cup of coffee.
