I pinched this from My Recipes Daily Indulgence. Hubby loves Peanut Butter & Jelly and this hit the spot!
I used Dry Roasted Peanuts and pulsed them lightly in my mini food processor.
I didn't have unsalted butter, so I used salted and left out the salt in the recipe.
You could use any sort of preserves that you like.
Enjoy!
