Don't these look awesome! I thought so to! Both my hubby and I LOVE peanut butter and I use it as a protein substitute almost daily (Had gastric by-pass surgery). He just loves it, period. :D This is a Paula Deen recipe and we know there is gonna be lots of "butta" somewhere in this recipe - In this case in the Compound Butter Recipe Haven't made these yet, but I will. Hope you like them too!
