Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Ok, I lied. No jelly- lots of peanut butter. We are having dinner with the West’s tonight. Not to be confused with the REAL West’s (aka- my family), just coincidentally the same last name of which I have agreed they are worthy of carrying. They make me proud! West-side, represent!

Anyhow, I’m in charge of a side and a dessert, so I made a peanut butter pie. What not better to have peanut butter pie with than peanut butter cup martini’s???

As any good home ec teacher would do, I have prepared the peanut butter cup martini ahead of time to make sure it came out ok– if you don’t believe me, read any home ec teacher handbook and it will tell you- “prepare dishes before any event to ensure that it is prepared correctly and has the desired flavor you are looking for.”
I had to try it!! What is a good home ec teacher to do?
On a side note, I did run into my home ec teacher from high school/county supervisor at the grocery store this afternoon and she seemed a little disappointed I was buying salad in a bag for my side. Once I told her I made a homemade peanut butter pie she said it all canceled out. Besides, she advised me today that I should be more worried about making money than I am food/crafts. Good to know, Mrs. Bentz! I will remember that for as long as live. Especially when I don’t feel like making a homemade meal for my boys! Did you hear that Matt??
And for the grand finale…..drum roll, please…..recipe for peanut butter cup martini (Thanks to the Venue and the Brookester):
3 oz amarula
2 oz frangelico
2 oc chocolate liquer
2 oz half/half
squeeze of peanut butter (best kind is the squeeze kind)
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake, strain into an old-fashioned glass straight up or on the rocks.
I added chocolate syrup as a garnish to my martini glass- people you are dealing with a home ec teacher, remember. It’s got to look pretty!!!

  1. That sounds so good! I will have to try it out. I am so not good at trying out recipes first. I know I should but I almost never do. Anyone who is a guest at my house, beware!


  2. They sure were delicious! And the peanut butter pie was yummy too. I can’t wait to have it for breakfast tomorrow! Thanks for coming! We had a blast. Can’t wait to get together again soon.
