Created using a simple formula, this 1-minute peanut butter syrup is perfectly nutty and sweet. This versatile recipe is only limited by your imagination.
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.
Some other delicious dessert sauces you might like to try include dulce de leche for caramel lovers, Mama’s custard sauce, and my pecan praline sauce.
Ready? Let’s get started! Don’t blink because you’ll miss it if you do :).
- Creamy peanut butter
- Honey (or syrup of your choice)
How to Make Peanut Butter Syrup in 1 Minute
Place peanut butter and honey (or whatever syrup you’re using) in a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup.
Heat for 30 seconds in your microwave, then stir. Heat for 30 seconds more and stir until smooth and creamy.
That’s it, you’re done! Enjoy your peanut butter syrup!
This is excellent served over vanilla ice cream…
But it’s also the perfect way to make scrumptious butter pancakes.
Be sure to try it for breakfast on homemade biscuits, waffles, French toast, or regular toast.
It’s a fantastic warm dessert topping too. Drizzle your peanut butter sauce over a slice of pound cake, cheesecake, bread pudding, brownies, or cookies. If all else fails, just eat it with a spoon!
This 1-minute peanut butter syrup is a peanut butter lover’s heaven!
Surprise your family tonight with this delicious treat!
Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I like to store mine in a mason jar, as above.
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!!!
My chocolate/peanut butter combo loving husband is going to love this!!!!
This looks wonderful!
Thank you Barbara 🙂 Hope you can try it soon.
This would be so good to add to a pound cake!
The PB syrup with granny smith apple slices is a delish little treat/snack! Also on chocolate ice cream…num
