Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping
My baby boy turned 1 today. It’s so very exciting to see him growing and learning new things every day. Growing up is bittersweet in my eyes though. I’m happy that he is starting to walk and talk but sad that he isn’t content to cuddle and coo at me for hours. I remember when Four Year Old Foodie would ONLY take naps in my arms or in the arms of my husband. *sigh* This time goes so quickly and life is uncertain so I try to cherish every moment. One thing I am most certain will never change however is my love of peanut butter.I blame my dad for this obsession. You see, when I was a child my dad always offered a spoonful of peanut butter as a remedy for hiccups. If you think that’s weird then you will think it is even more bizarre that it really works! Well, it worked for me anyway. When I was in high school my (now) husband thought this remedy was absurd and that it was “all in my head” so I decided to put it to the test. The next time I got the hiccups instead of taking a spoonful of peanut butter I simply opened the jar and took a deep sniff. Turns out he was right- even just the smell of peanut butter told my mind it was time to stop hiccuping.
Just to be clear I reverted back to my spoonful remedy anyway.
For me the only way you could make peanut butter better is by making it easier to spoon out and drizzle on whatever is close by. This peanut butter topping is perfect for hiccups, ice cream, brownies, or whatever you have on hand. You could make a killer peanut butter milkshake with this stuff. Are you a chocolate-lover or do you prefer vanilla? The good news is that peanut butter goes with EVERYTHING!
