My daughters wanted peanut butter syrup on their waffles, so I made this up. It's delicious! Stores in the refrigerator for a really long time. Serve over pancakes with sliced bananas. Try coconut extract in place of vanilla for added flavor.

I gave this four stars because it is easy to make and delicious. The end result is a beautiful peanut flavored syrup that your kids and peanut lovers will enjoy. I used brown sugar instead of white sugar because it is my favorite. Read More

I really didn't like this. It was really thin/watery. In fairness I used Kirkland brand natural peanut butter and I haven't been thrilled with that either. Read More

I tried this recipe today. While I was making it I had three out of four boys whine about 'Peanut Butter syrup EWE!" I cooked it up and served it anyway...It was a HIT! All of a sudden it was their idea in the first place-- rolling my eyes... Read More

I used evaporated milk in this recipe plain ol' Jif (I don't keep natural peanut butter on hand) and folded in a half cup of chopped salted peanuts. I did not try this myself but my kids told me it's fantastic. Especially over homemade whole wheat waffles.;) Read More

I made this as written with regular peanut butter. It is quite tasty with a sweet peanut butter flavor and a hint of vanilla. I was worried at first that it was too thin but it thickened a bit upon standing. This syrup turned toasted frozen waffles into a special weekday breakfast. I am excited to try this on homemade waffles and pancakes too. It also crossed my mind to maybe try this with Nutella in place of peanut butter to make a chocolate syrup I think I may do that next time. Read More

This is delicious. I only had whole milk and it did thicken it for me. It was more like a caramel consistency. It was still delicious. Read More

I used almond milk cashew butter and brown sugar (I didn't feel like going to the store it's what I found in the pantry and it seemed like it'd work) and used about 5 drops of chocolate extract (because I didn't have enough vanilla - I really should go to the store) and served this over Elvis Pancakes (Krusteaz Buttermilk pancake mix with thin sliced bananas and dark chocolate chips. https://snapguide.com/guides/make-yummy-chocolate-chip-banana-pancakes-1/). Plates were licked. Read More
