A month ago I received a complimentary box of peanut butter from Peanut Butter and Co. and although I eat a TON of peanut butter, I knew I wanted to create something with one of the flavors in particular. (No, this is not a sponsored post.)

 

So I feel kind of guilty because I have seen these peanut butters in the store, but this is the first time I have tried them. One of the cool things I didn’t know, is that ALL of their peanut butters are all-natural. You can read EVERY ingredient on the label. I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel good!

 

I tried 5 flavors: Mighty Maple, White Chocolate Wonderful, The Bee’s Knees, Dark Chocolate Dreams, and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl. I think my favorite is The Bee’s Knees. It’s for sure my son’s favorite because he likes peanut butter and honey sandwiches, so honey in the peanut butter is a plus! I chose the White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter for my recipe today because it just screams dessert to me!

 

White Chocolate Peanut Butter

Peanut butter blended with sweet white chocolate = delicious!

 

This peanut butter contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union. The shelf life is 6 months after opening, if stored in a cool, dry place, but who on earth doesn’t eat their peanut butter with the first week, uh, I mean month?!

I decided I wanted to play with the white chocolate in the peanut butter, so I made peanut butter cookie dough with white chocolate chips, and stacked it on top of a dark chocolate brownie mix to make brownies + cookies = brookies!

They took a while to bake, but they were worth it!
