Hot and Spicy Peanut Butter

Dana Ramsey


I came across a recipe on here that required a peanut butter called The Heat is On Peanut Butter. Well I could not find it in any of our local stores and to order a jar online would have cost me $6.00 plus shipping. Well here is a recipe that is a copy-cat of the Heat is On Peanut Butter. I tried it in my cookie recipe that required peanut butter. Wow those cookies have some heat and my hubby loved them.
