The Peanut Butter Munchies were my personal favorite; they are like little bites of heaven, and I promise you can’t eat just one!

Peanut Butter Passion is filled with decadent and delicious recipes that you will want to make over and over again. Ann does a fantastic job of presenting creative and diverse recipes that utilize perfect techniques, and are easy to follow. She has managed to bring everyone’s favorite peanut butter into a plethora of different meal courses and different forms of dessert. I cannot wait to try more of Ann’s recipes at home and in our bakery!
