In case you didn’t know, my family is made up of a bunch of peanut butter fanatics. So on National Peanut Butter Day each year, I drop what I am doing and rush into the kitchen to mix up a batch of this delicious peanut butter syrup. It’s basically sweet peanut butter bliss, I tell ya! Here’s the recipe to show you how easy it is to make and some of the many uses for it. When I say it takes just 1 minute, I mean it.

This very versatile recipe has a simple formula: 1 part peanut butter to 2 parts syrup. The syrup I’m using in this post is honey but you can also use pure maple syrup, Karo syrup (corn syrup), or even pancake syrup in its place. Thick, creamy, sweet, and rich, your pancakes, waffles, or ice cream sundae will never be the same again. Once you try this peanut butter syrup recipe, I just know you’ll make it again and again. It’s the most decadent way to get your peanut butter fix.

Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I like to store mine in a mason jar, as above.

Recipe Notes

I recommend using creamy peanut butter in this recipe. Natural peanut butter and crunchy peanut butter don’t microwave as well, so the syrup consistency won’t be as smooth.

      I grew up eating Karo pancake syrup mixed with peanut butter, just eyeballed it. Put a huge dollop of peanut butter in a bowl then poured in the syrup, mixed with a butter knife then would eat it in saltines or make a sandwich with it or just eat it with a spoon! Delicious!!!
