It doesn’t end with adulthood. Everyone, at every age, knows that peanut butter evokes the wonderful taste of childhood, innocence, family, playtime and private moments between you and the pantry.

As the wise and hungry like to say, “Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter.”

Peanut butter is both heartwarming and packed with protein. Not to mention wildly mouthwatering, totally addictive and all sorts of scrumptious. (Unless you’re allergic, in which case there’s always jelly!) But, hey, we’re preaching to the choir here.

To celebrate the joy of peanut butter, the makers of the SKIPPY® brand created kid-friendly recipes featuring peanut butter and its friends. Think peanut butter and apples, peanut butter and bananas, and peanut butter and – oh, hello – chocolate.

Grab a tall glass of milk, because here are some of the best PB&awesomeness recipes out there.
