According to small-batch peanut-butter maker Nerdy Nuts, butterbeer peanut butter has “slivers of butter rum toffee mixed with sweet, thick butterscotch.” While it sounds like it would be great on morning toast or a sandwich, it may also be the perfect replacement in any recipe that calls for peanut butter, like these peanut butter cheesecake truffles.
Nerdy Nuts says the peanut butter is so popular that it sells out quickly once it’s restocked, but they are adding tens of thousands of jars every Sunday, so you should be able to get your hands on some if you keep an eye on their website. A 16-ounce jar is $12.99.
If you want to add some other flavors to your order or just try something else, Nerdy Nuts has tons of fun peanut butter flavors, including cookies & scream, white chocolate, monster cookie and fluffernutter.
The fluffernutter flavor combines the flavors from a favorite sandwich from childhood: Sweet and fluffy marshmallow cream is hand-mixed with Nerdy Nuts’ freshly-ground, honey-roasted peanut butter, all in one jar.
Plenty of other companies have created butterbeer-inspired treats, too.
Butterbeer marshmallows, for example, are butterscotch-flavored marshmallows that have a hint of cinnamon, cream and vanilla. While liquor is used in the making of the marshmallows, it is burned off in the process, so they are alcohol-free.
You can also find butterbeer ice cream from Yuengling’s Ice Cream, based in Pennsylvania. Made using half buttercream ice cream and half butterscotch ice cream, it can be found at specialty grocery stores and some chain stores around the country.
The latte is made with whole milk and toffee nut, caramel and cinnamon dolce syrups. You can also include espresso if you want some caffeine. It is then garnished with whipped cream and salted caramel pieces or the caramel brûlée topping.
