Ohhh my goodness. Pure goodness.
It’s no secret that Brian loves sweet. We had been buying jars of natural peanut butter for him to keep at work, so I wouldn’t have to pack a little bit for him with an apple. Well, some of the “natural” versions aren’t so natural and having to stir your own pb at work can be a little obnoxious. So, I decided that I was going to make a batch to send with him. When I got to the nut aisle, the honey roasted peanuts caught my eye. A sweeter version of peanut butter for Brian?
My head started spinning with thoughts like: Blending those up would be too intense. Too sweet. Or would it? Could I do part roasted peanuts and part honey roasted?
Yes! Yes, that would work.
So I bought jars of roasted peanuts and honey roasted peanuts, excited to experiment.
I started out with 2/3 honey roasted and 1/3 roasted figuring that I could always add more unsweetened nuts to the mix to damper down the sweet if needed.
Oh, but I did not need to. The saltiness of the roasted peanuts perfectly complimented the sweet of the honey roasted. This right here is magic. Perfection. Pure goodness.
So smooth and creamy.
I couldn’t stop dipping my fingers in for tastes. I was happy for it to head to work with Brian, because I could have eaten the entire container of it in no time.
