Peanut butter and…fill in the blank. What comes to your mind first? Jelly, perhaps? (If you’re tempted to say “cupcake,” our kids have a similar taste in books, and I applaud you.) No, in my opinion the perfect pairing with peanut butter is chocolate.
Then again, I tend to associate almost anything with chocolate, so I may be biased. However, you cannot deny the synergy between these two ingredients. The peanut butter brings a touch of delicious flavor along the way, cutting the sweetness of the chocolate. Depending on how you use them, peanut butter and chocolate can combine for a creamy, luscious luxury or for a satisfying crunch and texture.
