What is Amish Peanut Butter?
Amish peanut butter is sort of a misnomer. The title would have you believe that this is a peanut butter recipe, or a how-to tutorial on how to make peanut butter. When in fact it is a recipe on how to improve upon peanut butter. By taking peanut butter and adding in some marshmallow fluff and other added ingredients we get a creamy smooth spread perfect for dipping in.
This peanut butter is definitely on the sweet side. I’m not going to lie, this peanut butter tastes like a fluffernutter on a sugar high. It does have corn syrup and maple syrup which means you sort of have to think of this recipe as a dessert of sorts instead of a sandwich filling.
- Brown sugar
- Corn syrup
- Maple syrup
- Peanut butter
- Marshmallow Fluff
For the exact amounts needed, please see the recipe card below.
How to Make Amish Peanut Butter
Combine the brown sugar, water, corn syrup, and maple syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Stir the mixture until it comes to a boil and then remove it from the heat.
Allow the mixture to cool.
In a large mixing bowl combine the peanut butter and marshmallow fluff until well mixed.
Add in your cooled sugar mixture and then stir until completely combined.
Pour the mixture into airtight containers and enjoy when desired.
- I recommend using creamy peanut butter for this recipe, and not the natural kind with the oils on top as that will cause this peanut butter to separate as it’s stored and to have an inconsistent texture.
- Marshmallow fluff and marshmallow creme are basically the same things are are completely interchangeable in this recipe. So whichever one is easier for you to find, go ahead and use it.
- Karo syrup can be used in place of the corn syrup if you have it on hand. The results will be the same thanks to them both having very similar tastes and consistencies.
Does Amish peanut butter need to be refrigerated?
Keeping this peanut butter in the fridge isn’t necessary but you can keep it in there if you enjoy it chilled. what matters most is that it is kept stored in an airtight container for maximum freshness.
How long does Amish peanut butter last?
Around here it never lasts for too long! Haha, it’s just too good to resist. That said if you keep your peanut butter stored well in an airtight container you can expect it to last up to a few weeks and still be good. If it looks like the mixture has begun to separate, go ahead and give it a nice stir before using. If needed, you can even add in a drop or two of hot water to help rehydrate the spread.
