Hey, I’m back! Sorry it has been a bit quiet around here lately. I have been cooking and baking plenty, but have not had much inspiration to write, and trust me, when my writing is forced, it will be of interest to absolutely no one.

This week my oldest baby turns seven! I can hardly begin to wrap my head around that fact. You may remember, last year we celebrated with his extremely excellent party idea of a waffle PJ party. We had stacks and stacks of waffles with toppings and sauces galore, one of which was creamy peanut butter sauce.

I promised to share the recipe aaaand here it is, just under one year late. Better late than never, right? This sauce has got it going on! It is smooth and creamy, sweet and salty, and would work well on so very many things. Top waffles, pancakes, ice cream, brownies, yogurt and granola, smoothies, and the list goes on. We never have trouble finding ways to use it up, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup peanut oil
  • 2 tbsp. confectioners’ sugar
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt, plus more as needed


  • 01

    Combine all ingredients in a bowl and puree until smooth with an immersion blender. Alternatively, blend in a food processor or blender.

    I’m so glad you’re back!! I was hoping everything was ok! You were definitely missed. I cant believe Andrew will be 7! Time really does fly! Happy Birthday to him! and the peanut butter sauce sounds AMAZING!

  • Seven is just a bit more than my brain can handle. Such an old man!

  • annieseats

    I know, right?! Totally agree.

  • Angela

    I love peanut butter so much. I am excited to make this.

    You were missed. :) Happy Monday.

  • I’ve been addicted to peanut butter the last few months. I saw the title of this post and couldn’t resist. I might have to hide from my husband though. He makes fun of my peanut butter addiction!

  • Celeste Stinson

    This looks delicious! I love the serving dish you have it in – where did you get it? (My apologies if you’ve already answered this in another post.)

  • Annie, you may think this post is about a year late, but I think it’s perfect timing! I’ve had peanut butter on the brain lately, and this peanut butter sauce could be the perfect complement to a couple of the things I’ve been thinking of whipping up! Thanks for the recipe!

  • Megan

    I hope you are still planning to share your guest room makeover!

  • Sarah

    So excited to see a new post. I was hoping all was well. So excited for this recipe!!! Also anxiously awaiting my first order from Dear Kate.

  • Ooh yummy! I can’t believe Andrew will be 7! Can’t wait to see his birthday party

  • annieseats

    For sure! I wasn’t sure if anyone was all that interested but if you are, I’ll make it happen!

    Love her stuff!

  • When I first saw the title, I really thought you meant savory peanut sauce…but I am SO happy to see that it is sweet! This is going to get so much use.

  • Melissa

    This peanut butter sauce sounds a lot like a peanut butter frosting. It sounds like the perfect topping for a chocolate cake.

  • Clémentine

    oh my god I can’t resist to this perfect sauce :o

  • Amanda

    How do you store this, if making ahead? You’ve inspired my daughter’s waffle pj party this January! So excited about it!

  • annieseats

    I just store in the fridge. You may need to reheat to make it pourable again. I can’t recall whether that was necessary or whether we could just use it straight from the fridge.
