Move over slutty brownies…there’s a new slut in town! This peanut butter slutty bowl is going to have all you peanut butter lovers drooling and slobbering all over yourselves with delight. This sinfully rich dessert tastes great all by itself, but add a huge scoop of ice cream and some chocolate syrup and you may never return to normal.
You know how they tell you not to go shopping on an empty stomach? Well, you also shouldn’t watch cooking shows on an empty stomach either. I went on a food channel bender a few days ago and then proceeded to go off the deep end cooking pretty much everything I just saw on tv. It was an epic amount of food that got shared with lots of people (thankfully). This peanut butter dessert was the first thing I made.
Some show that covers nothing but carnival food had me sliding off the couch to get closer to the screen (in thoughts that I could reach through the screen to grab those delectable treats). This peanut butter dessert, they call peanut butter cobbler, jumped right out to me. I HAD TO MAKE IT! I didn’t have a recipe, but they ran through some of the main ingredients on the show. I knew it would be mine.
This peanut butter cobbler is not for the faint of heart. Oh sure it’s easy to make, and even easier to eat, but therein lies the problem. Eating too much of this will send you into a peanut butter coma. How do I know this? My resident taste tester, Craig, couldn’t wait to dig in and just couldn’t stop. Once his stomach caught up with his mouth it was too late…the belly ache and peanut butter coma had kicked in. Oh, I should probably mention that the decision of vanilla or chocolate ice cream is up to you…they both taste really good. Craig couldn’t decide, so he went with both (ultimately choosing chocolate as his favorite).
I chose to take a more demure approach. Since I like the crunchy sides and bottom of this dessert, I didn’t drown it in ice cream (oh, and I only went for vanilla). I plopped a small-ish scoop of vanilla on top and then drizzled with some chocolate ganache. You gotta have chocolate and peanut butter together…right?
One of the cool things about this peanut butter dessert is that it isn’t just a big pile of mushy peanut butter. It’s got a cakey top, the soft and rich peanut butter middle and these great crispy edges and bottom from the butter that gets sneaked in between the peanut butter filling and the cobbler top. It basically fries the peanut butter in butter. Brilliant!!!
So if you’ve got yourself a peanut butter lover, or that person is you, I highly recommend making this asap. This peanut butter slutty bowl is calling your name. I know you can hear it.
