My husband loves peanut butter. He eats it on all kinds of things. His favorite kinds of desserts are those that have peanut butter in them.
I saw a recipe several years ago in Southern Living magazine for peanut butter pudding. I saved the recipe and added it to my stack of recipes to try. Well, my stack of recipes to try is quite large and many recipes get buried away never to be found again. Or at least not found for a long time. This recipe was one of those. I was recently looking for another recipe and came across this one again. I decided that I needed to try it soon before I forgot about it again.
So, the other day I had some milk that I needed to use up and thought it was a perfect time to try the peanut butter pudding recipe. My kids were thrilled with the idea of peanut butter pudding.
We all loved this recipe. If you really like peanut butter you will enjoy this recipe. I think it would be good with chocolate chips stirred in or serve it with chocolate pudding. A little scoop of chocolate pudding alongside this peanut butter pudding would be so good.
Peanut Butter Pudding
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine first three ingredients in a med saucepan. Gradually whisk in the milk. Bring to a boil over med heat, whisking constantly. Boil about 1 minute or until it starts to thicken. At this point the pudding will still be slightly thin. Turn heat off and add peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until well combine. The pudding should now be thick. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly over the warm pudding, this will help prevent a skin from forming on the pudding. Chill 2 hours. Serve.
