There are a few classic dessert flavors, but perhaps none more so than peanut butter. Its rich, creamy texture and unmistakable taste always transport me right back to childhood. I’ve put together a list of my favorite peanut butter desserts to bring you back to that happy place too, and you’ll find a bunch of different styles of peanut butter cookie in here, which is an all-time classic and one of my favorites. And no list would be complete without several treats that include everyone’s favorite combo: chocolate and peanut butter.

I sandwiched the filling from "buckeyes" in between two chocolate-almond macarons from La Maison Du Chocolat. It's quintessential American candy blended with the dainty French confection. The light, crisp chocolate cookie is the perfect balance for the rich filling.Get the recipe
The flavor of these cookies is more intense and the texture is smoother and more tender than my old recipe. The trick to their success is slightly under baking them so the center is a bit soft and the outside is crisp. I also used a chunky peanut butter for even more peanut taste and texture.Get the recipe
This peanut butter pie recipe is oh-so delicious. With a graham cracker crust, a smooth peanut butter filling made with cream cheese, a layer of chocolate ganache, and a whipped cream and candied peanut topping, this dessert is deluxe and irresistible. Be sure to chill this pie for two hours or overnight before serving.Get the recipe
