For peanut butter addicts

2017-10-11 06:02

THERE probably is a special name for peanut butter addicts, but just to give them some more to drool about, here are two ingredient-recipes starring peanut butter.

Mug cake

Stir an egg and 3 tablespoons of peanut butter in a mug, then microwave for one minute, and enjoy.

Freezer fudge

Melt 1 cup of 85% dark chocolate and mix in 1 cup of peanut butter. Spread the mixture on a lined tray and freeze until firm. Cut into “fudge” pieces

Peanut butter cups

Melt 1 cup of dark chocolate and spoon a thin layer into small patty pans. Freeze for 5 minutes and add ? teaspoon of peanut butter to each. Spoon the remaining chocolate on top and freeze until firm (about 30 minutes).

Satay sauce (peanut butter and coconut cream, equals Satay)

This simple sauce just adds something extra. Pour a tin of coconut cream and ½ cup of peanut butter in a pot, and simmer on medium until fragrant. If you like spice, add a sprinkle of cumin and cayenne

Ice magic

Combine 125ml of peanut butter with 40ml of coconut oil and drizzle ice-cream.

It will crisp up just like the old childhood treat.
