There are few things more glorious than peanut butter when it comes to our favorite foods. In fact, we could eat peanut butter at just about any hour of the day or night (because in appropriate quantities, it’s still good for you, right?). That said, we’re not surprised that this Saturday, January 24th, has been deemed National Peanut Butter Day (NPBD). Of course, we’re super excited to celebrate/indulge in (same thing) our favorite peanut butter treats. From no-bake peanut butter cookies to peanut butter martinis or peanut butter and bacon sandwiches (yep), NPBD may just be the best day, ever. Check below for yummy recipes to help you celebrate this oh-so-wonderful holiday.
