Recipe: Peanut Butter Fondue

The holidays are just around the corner and that means lots of great opportunities for entertaining. My trick is to have a few tasty treats prepared beforehand so that they’re ready to go, like this twist on traditional chocolate fondue. Peanut butter is always a crowd pleaser, and this sauce tastes like liquid peanut butter fudge. Best of all, the peanut butter fondue can be made up to two weeks ahead and stored in the fridge, so once your party guests arrive, all you need to do is heat and serve.

Peanut Butter Fondue
1 3/4 sticks butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup of smooth peanut butter

Bring the butter, brown sugar, cream, and vanilla to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. While the sugar mixture is still hot, stir in the peanut butter until there are no lumps. Store in airtight containers in the fridge for up to two weeks. Serve warm.

My plan this fall is to serve it alongside fresh fruit and chilled apple cider, but it’s also delicious with pound or angel-food cake, brownies, marshmallows, or poured over vanilla-bean ice cream. Plus, it makes a great gift—simply package in a pretty jar for an easy, homemade parting gift.
