I bought some peanut butter at Aldi the other day. I usually switch back and forth from the generic brand and a name brand that I buy at Walmart.

To me, the name brand tastes a little better than the generic, but I buy the generic more often because it is so much cheaper than the name brand I like.

But I wanted to try Aldi’s store brand to see how it measured up because it is way cheaper than even the generic at Walmart.

It tasted fine, but I knew right away that is wasn’t going to work for PB& J’s because the consistency was not spreadable. I mean this is some stiff peanut butter!

So then I thought okay, I bet there are a ton of yummy things I can make out of peanut butter, and so begins this journey to make things using peanut butter.

Of course, I bought the BIG container so I will be making peanut butter stuff until I start doing my Christmas baking. Good thing  I love peanut butter!

I decided to put some chopped peanuts on the top to give it a little crunch. I am glad I did because I think it was a good addition. Some chocolate sauce drizzled over top would also give it another level of flavor.

I left my pie in the refrigerator overnight and it set up nicely and was easy to cut and even get the first piece out.
