Peanut Butter with a Twist

Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter This will keep tightly covered in the fridge for weeks.  Although I doubt it will last that long! 1 c creamy peanut butter 3 T honey 1 1/2-2 tsp cinnamon Whisk all ingredients together. Peanut Butter W/Honey & Cocoa I wanted this to taste like peanut butter with chocolate in it, not chocolate with a bit of peanut butter.  This has just a hint of chocolate without being too sweet. 1 c creamy peanut butter 1/4 c honey 1 T cocoa powder a splash of hot water Whisk all ingredients together.  Add the splash of hot water if needed, as the cocoa can make it a bit dry.
