The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition—Things Are Heating Up Peanut Butter Recipe Contest

Have you heard of Nick--The Peanut Butter Boy?  This great guy LOVES peanut butter and has dedicated a blog to it.  I’m joining him, along with a couple others in judging another installment of The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition.  Join in—check out how easy it is to submit a recipe.  It’s fun to see all the recipe submissions and to ultimately see who the judges—Brandi at Bran Appetit, Sagan at Living in the Real World and myself as well as Nick will pick as the top three winners! 

You have a few weeks to think about it, create and heat things up with this one!  Check out the instructions below. 


The theme for this round is Things are Heating Up. Mother Nature has dumped an extraordinary amount of snow on us this winter and it’s time for some warmth. And nothing provides warmth better than geting cozy with a jar of peanut butter. So we want to know the most imaginative recipe you can devise in which the peanut butter is warm at some point. This is a wide open theme so get creative, whether it’s a Spicy Toasted Panini, some Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies or a massive pancake topped with peanut butter (and hence, warmed). And extra kudos to those who make their recipe spicy too! To enter, submit your best peanut butter recipe following the guidelines below. The deadline is Monday, February 28th @ Noon (EST) which gives over 2 weeks (and 3 weekends) to brainstorm, develop and create a smokin’ peanut butter recipe that will change the world forever!

Judging Criteria:

Uniqueness, Peanut Butter Weight, Presentation and Preparation Time.

  • Post and submit your “Things Are Heating Up” recipe by the deadline.
