I have to tell you something about my family, they are peanut butter monsters. Each and every one of them. It is insane the amount of peanut butter my family goes through in a month. I sometimes wonder if my family has peanut butter running through their veins they eat so much of it. With eating the quantities that we do there are always debates. Like the basic Creamy, Crunchy or both? Regular peanut butter or honey peanut butter? Which peanut butter is the best peanut butter? My husband and I have seriously stood in the aisle comparing labels for a good twenty minutes trying to figure that last one out. Then I discovered a new peanut butter, Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast at Walmart.
I fell in love with it. I shared some with Lil Miss and Mr Great when we made Peanut Butter Monster Rice Cakes but I want to keep the rest to myself. Would it be that bad if I hid it for myself?
So what makes this peanut butter so special? Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast is “creamy with a BIT OF CRUNCH.” It’s not smooth but at the same time it is not a traditional crunchy peanut butter. It is similar to the texture of freshly ground peanut butter. I really like the texture. It is perfect just spread on a rice cake, my go to pre- long run breakfast to just dipping some Honeycrisp apple slices in.
Thinking about my favorite things to eat with peanut butter with I came up with a great snack idea for my kids, Peanut Butter Rice Cake Monsters. When my boy’s were younger I was always trying to come up with cute snack ideas for school. By the time it is my daughters turn most of these ideas are old news and she wants something different. Halloween is coming up so I knew I had to get to work for her class halloween party so I started brainstorming and came up with an idea that combines some of my favorite things and lets her play with her food. To top it off it is a healthy snack. Can you say win-win?
These monsters are somee of the easiest things to make. All you need is Peter Pan Simply Ground Original Honey Roast, Rice Cakes and your favorite food. Raisins, chocolate chips, nuts and pretzels could be used also if desired. Get creative with it!
Step one, prepare your fruit. If you will not be eating your monsters right away and will be using apples remember to add some lemon juice to help prevent the apples from browning.
Next open up your peanut butter, doesn’t that peanut butter look delicious!
Spread 2 (or more) tablespoons of peanut butter on a rice cake. If you add more I won’t judge. Peter Pan Simply Ground Honey Roast is good stuff!
Once your peanut butter is evenly spread across your rice cake it is time to play with your food and create your monster.
My daughter loved this part!
I thought my monster was pretty cute!
Ok so both of our monsters were pretty cute!
All that is left now is to eat. My daughter loved her snack!
She keeps asking me when she can make another one! I have to say this was a definite win! I am looking forward to sharing these Peanut Butter Rice Cake Monsters with her friends for Halloween!
