Get ready for peanut butter overload. The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition is back in town! Please welcome my co-hosts from Bran Appetit, Living Healthy in the Real World, and Baking and Boys. It gives us great honor to bring you the next installment of the greatest recipe roundup and competition! And, for the third time in a row, we have a stupendous prize package sponsored by the super-famous and always-delicious Peanut Butter & Co.!

The theme for this round is Things are Heating Up. Mother Nature has dumped an extraordinary amount of snow on us this winter and it’s time for some warmth. And nothing provides warmth better than geting cozy with a jar of peanut butter. So we want to know the most imaginative recipe you can devise in which the peanut butter is warm at some point. This is a wide open theme so get creative, whether it’s a Spicy Toasted Panini, some Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies or a massive pancake topped with peanut butter (and hence, warmed). And extra kudos to those who make their recipe spicy too! To enter, submit your best peanut butter recipe following the guidelines below. The deadline is Monday, February 28th @ Noon (EST) which gives over 2 weeks (and 3 weekends) to brainstorm, develop and create a smokin’ peanut butter recipe that will change the world forever!

Judging Criteria:

Uniqueness, Peanut Butter Weight, Presentation and Preparation Time.

    So then, you go to sleep the night before the interview and you have a dream
    where you walk into the interview room naked. In real life, you know you don’t find that cousin sexually attractive at all,
    but then’ why the dream. I want to marry my girlfriend, just
    like my brother is going to marry his girlfriend.
