Looking for a garnish for your dessert? Grab that jar of peanut butter.

Add sweetener to taste (agave, honey, maple syrup, sugar or noncaloric sweetener). Consider a pinch of cinnamon.

Then pipe the peanut butter from a pastry bag. You can use a plastic food storage bag by cutting off a small piece of one corner.

Then pipe away, onto angel food cake, brownies, cookies, cupcakes, ice cream, pie, pound cake or pudding.

If you’d like a traditional sauce, you simply need a few more ingredients.


Turn peanut butter into a pourable dessert sauce with this easy recipe:
Ingredients For 1 Cup

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • Optional: pinch of cinnamon
  • Optional: bourbon, rum or liqueur (almond, coffee or other nut flavor)
  • Optional: whole or chopped peanuts for garnish*
