Remember that post I did about PB Crave? I had a really cool code for you guys to use for free shipping. It's unfortunately expired now, but, if you didn't get any PB Crave peanut butter yet-YOU NOW HAVE THE CHANCE TO WIN SOME! Scroll down to read more about the giveaway.
 PB Crave is premium, all natural, gourmet peanut butter (that comes in 4 flavors). Currently only available online, these peanut butters are both crave-worthy and socially responsible! PB Crave is a part of Project Peanut Butter and, in addition to investing funds to create awareness to promote direct giving to Project Peanut Butter, they also give a portion of their profits to it. Malnutrition is the leading cause of death among children and PB Crave and Project Peanut Butter are trying to save young lives in Africa-they aim to save 2 million lives by 2015.

PB Crave sent me samples of all their 4 varieties, and here is some of what I did with them:
((for all, though, they are great to spread on things--and I can only imagine what sorts of delicious frostings these would make for cupcakes, for example))

I was convinced this would be my favorite. Cookie dough flavor + peanut butter!? It is delicious, but I couldn't really go at it with a spoon. It's extremely rich (and that's coming from me), so I found it was best when used in other recipes. I made some delicious Peanut Butter Cream Pie (above) with it, as well as Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies.
This one is actually my favorite. I'm weirdly addicted to melting it with some dark chocolate chips and just eating. Mmm....I also used it to make a raspberry and dark chocolate PB&J for Michael. I'm looking forward to using Choco Choco in a lot of other recipes in the future (and to spread on some pancakes/waffles :P).
I'm a big fan of bananas and chocolate and peanut butter. It's a great trio of flavors. Once again, though, this pb is too rich to eat by itself--it was even a bit too rich to just have peanut butter toast (perhaps it'd be better with slices of banana on top). I have used it, very successfully, in a couple of recipes! It was amazing in Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies, and I also used it in some Peanut Butter Banana Oat Muffins (that I will, eventually, share later). I'm sure I'll keep finding great stuff to use this in!
I knew this wasn't going to be for me-I don't like raspberries or white chocolate. But Michael loves raspberry and peanut butter so I figured he could eat this up. I ended up using the entire jar to make him a (very rich) batch of the Easy 2+ Ingredient Ice Cream. Michael's thoughts: "There's so much going on! It's good tongue is so confused. It's like I'm experiencing all four seasons. It'd make a really good peanut butter and jelly, that's for sure." He likes the ice cream, it apparently is just a very overwhelming combination of flavors, so he can only eat a couple scoops at a time (I know, poor him, ONLY 2 SCOOPS!? lol).
