Peanut Butter Porn

Don't worry guys, I promise this is suitable for work. Alison, over at The Peacock Diaries, posted a couple of days ago about the Nutropolitan Museum of Art. My beloved Peanut Butter and Co. has a glorious gallery of pictures like this one here:

PB and fig jelly sandwich with whole fig slices and caramel corn. 


Oh, and this one too:

Dark Chocolate Dream PB w/black cherry preserves, whole blackberries, and chocolate chips

Honestly, I thought it was all pretty rude. How can they show us this stuff and not let me eat it? My PB&J sandwiches were looking pretty pathetic. I got my thinking cap on and got ready to make my own PB creation. Maybe not quite as drool-worthy in the photos, but every bit as delicious.

Peanut Butter Rice Pudding 

This makes 2 portions, so adjust if you need more. Ingredients:
-1 cup of cooked rice (I used some leftover basmati)
-1 whole egg
-3 tablespoons of White Chocolate Wonderful PB
-1 tsp. Vanilla
-1/4 cup brown sugar


Mix all ingredients together and pour into an oven-proof dish. Place that dish into a larger dish or pan with hot water--a water bath. I baked the pudding for 25 minutes at 450 degrees. 

It came out perfectly, with a slight brown sugar crust--like you find on top of a creme brulee. 


I portioned it out into two little blue dishes, and saved one for later. I *may* have eaten it for lunch and then chased it down with a quick salad to get my greens in. I really wish I could describe how amazing this was.

Do you like PB? You'll love this. 
Do you like dessert? You'll love this. 
Are you human? You'll love this.

Seriously. Divine!


Am I the only one who drools over pictures of food? Tell me I'm not alone!
That PB gallery was honestly amazing, and gave me tons of ideas for recipes I'll use in the future. I love seeing great food photos on blogs as well, but they always make me hungry!

What's your absolute favorite dessert?
Um...this! I would say cheesecake or creme brulee otherwise. I like sweet much more than I like chocolate desserts!

  6. Now, that title is something I never heard before in my life.

    My friend makes home made PB, he says its super easy and takes less then 30 mins, most of the time is waiting for the peanuts to roast in the oven, he claims he will never buy PB again now that he can make it

  10. Not a fan of rice pudding, but I like the PB idea! Peanut butter always has a place in my dessert.

    BUT a big hunk of rich chocolate cake is probably my fave. Or ice cream. Or both.
