Peanut butter has to be one of my favourite food groups on the planet! You may have read last week about how amazing chocolate hazelnut is – and oh it is amazing – and how my office spend their afternoon indulging in Nutella on toast or in sandwiches. But always alongside the Nutella is the world’s biggest tub of peanut butter – and it’s a good peanut butter too!

When I can’t smell Nutella I can smell peanut butter – and when I can’t smell peanut butter I can smell Nutella – it’s not all bad!!

It does however make me crave food containing these ingredients and I have been known to take a moment in my lunch break to start jotting down idea.

And there are so many of them it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start. This one really is a melt-in-the-mouth experience – even more so than I had imagined.
