Cinna- Peanut Butter Fondue

image

I decided to enter in The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition recipe contest. The decision was simple. I love peanut butter and the prize is really nice! Peanut Butter & Co makes some of the best peanut butter I’ve tasted and winning six jars would be amazing! In order to win I had to come  up with a fabulous recipe where peanut butter has been heated through somehow or by adding some extra heated spice! I thought about it, I dreamed about it and I finally came  up with a recipe that was somewhat healthy, exciting and would be delicious. Cinna- Peanut Butter Fondue. The peanut butter is melted in a mixture of coconut milk, maple syrup, brown sugar and peanut butter chips. I spiced it up by adding cinnamon and a little salt to bring out the peanut butter flavor.

The best part was tasting the fondue with all the different dippers like pretzel rods, green apples, bananas, marshmallows and honey graham crackers. I then decided to test it out on top of homemade vanilla ice cream as well and it was over the top delicious! Each dipper brought out the fondue to a whole new level. My favorite was using the pretzel because the crunch and salt went well with the sweet cinnamon and creamy peanut butter. This is a great snack to enjoy with the kids after school or make it into a fondue party!

Okay, YUM!!!!
I love that instead of just dipping things in the fondue, you ended up just pouring it over a bowl of stuff. Looks really good, Fallon!

I think every night this week I've had ice cream with peanut butter fondue drizzled on top. I love the leftovers ;)
