March first is Peanut Butter Lovers’ Day. This is one of my favorite holidays because I LOVE peanut butter! So, we made a lot of peanut butter-y food! My mom did Nutella on her foods instead of peanut butter because she can’t stand peanuts/peanut butter and may have an intolerance.
For breakfast, we did pocket pies. We [somewhat] followed a recipe from Woman’s Day Magazine. We cut rounds out of store-bought pie crust dough and spread the peanut butter/Nutella over some fruit. Then we sealed it with another round and baked them. They had a very high calorie count (per pie it was near 350 calories), but they were very yummy. I preferred the Nutella pies better because warm peanut butter is very strange to me!
We also followed a recipe from Woman’s Day for the truffles. The Nutella ones were very easy to roll. The peanut butter ones? Forget clean hands! I looked like I had been playing in [edible and yummy] mud! They were also a pain in the rear to cover in chocolate. But they were both really yummy. For the truffles, I actually did prefer the peanut butter ones because the Nutella ones were too sweet.
