Delightful Delectables- Smooth-Sailing Peanut Butter Sauce, The Perfect Peanut Butter Topping

by Maggie Kelleher

By now you might know that I had a little coffee cake photo shoot with some friends in prom dresses last week, and they were the judges in a battle between peanut butter and jelly. Okay, it was between peanut butter sauce and berry sauce, but it's in that realm.

Anyways, I already posted the recipe for the delicious Easy-Does-It Berry Sauce and today I am going to share with you how to make the peanut butter sauce, so you can host round two of this battle yourself.

Smooth-Sailing Peanut Butter Sauce. 

It may not be chunky peanut butter, but it's really good!

What will you need?
     2 Tbsp peanut butter
     1/2 cup peanut butter chips
     1/2 cup heavy cream

What do you need to do?
     Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan
     Stir while cooking on medium heat for about 5 minutes until smooth

I overcooked mine a bit, so I had to go back and add more cream and mix it a lot to get back that smooth consistency, so don't do what I did and take it off of the heat once it's smooth.

To pour it easily and decorate the cakes, I put the sauce in a plastic bag and cut off the corner, to make an icing bag (once it was cool, of course). I don't trust myself with a spoonful of thick peanut butter sauce, but I applaud you if you can wield it well.

Jenna fought valiantly to make the Smooth-Sailing Peanut Butter Sauce the winner.

Overall, we had some berry-lovers in our bunch so the Easy-Does-It Berry Sauce won this battle, but we had one peanut butter-lover who would definitely disagree! 

So go out there and enjoy! Do you like peanut butter or berries better? Let us know in the comments!
