It's peanut butter time!

Anyone who knows anything knows that peanut butter is the best food on the planet. It's the greatest filling for a sandwich, perfectly offsetting the sweetness of jam and fluff. It's the star of the most delicious candy known to man (ahem, Reese's). And, it's chocolate's best friend. Not to mention how irresistible it is all on its own, straight from the jar.

See? Greatest food on earth.

That's why we put a lot of time, thought and energy into rounding up the best peanut butter recipes the Internet has to offer. A lot of these recipes are paired with chocolate, because, duh. But there are also a number of riffs on the classic peanut butter cookie (a vital contribution to everyone's life), milkshakes featuring the nutty butter, and SO MANY CAKES.

Behold, the 50 recipes every peanut butter lover needs in their life if they want to experience the best existence possible.
