Happy Holidays, everyone! Decided to bust out the food processor (actually...do I ever put it away?) and make PB gift bags for everyone. Went to Meijer and found a box of 12 of these ADORABLE canning jars for $8.00! Each holds 4 ounces, so they're the perfect size for gift bags. And they come with fancy-schmancy labels as well.
I made three flavors -- pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and candy apple. The first two were from this chica's blog...well, I'll just link you to both recipes.
Basically, her blog is all about healthy desserts and brekkie foods. Most of them involve chocolate. Best. Blog. Ever. Haha.
This lovely pink butter is my own creation. And I'm gonna share it with you. :D
Candy Apple Peanut Butter
8 oz. natural PB
8 oz. unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
Splash of vanilla
A few drops of red food coloring
Blend everything except for the honey. Nuke the honey for about ten seconds, add to the mixture and then blend until it thickens. Note that the honey makes this REALLY sweet, just like a candy apple! But...if you're like me, and aren't a fan of overwhelmingly-sweet things, you can just leave it out.
P.S. -- I know, I know; this recipe isn't intended for any special diet. But it's just too nommy to not share!
