Adults and kids will find it irresistible!
WATCH HOW TO MAKE AMISH PEANUT BUTTER:
This simple recipe is a favorite in our house. We can go through Amish peanut butter fairly quickly, which means we go through apples pretty quickly too. I’m not complaining about either! Since this Amish peanut butter recipe is so easy to prepare, I am willing to make it for my family often. This recipe does make a big batch, so you can put it in containers and give it away to friends.
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.
What goes good with peanut butter spread?
If after you try this recipe you decide you are ready for more sweet dips then you can check out this caramel fruit dip and this Lemon Honey Fruit Dip!
I better go ahead and warn you now that once your family tries this peanut butter they are going to request it often. You may want to buy the ingredients in bulk!

Family Travels on a Budget says
On a trip to Amish country with friends, we ordered lunch at an amazing Amish restaurant. My husband and the other hubby ordered burgers (really??? In Amish Country???). Our food arrived and the guys grabbed the squeeze bottle of brown mustard sitting on the table… except… it was Amish peanut butter! Ohhhh, gross! That was back when the travel budget was super-tight, so the guys “manned up” and ate their Amish peanut butter fluff burgers. Every time I see Amish peanut butter I crack up!
Thanks for a great laugh to start the day 🙂
AND Happy Birthday to Ellie! My own Ellie just turned eight.
That is funny!!! Amish peanut butter IS good, but not with burgers! Oh my!!! Thanks for the birthday wishes! Our Ellie’s are close in age!
It looks good! I had to pin it for later 🙂 Happy birthday to your Ellie
Thank you so much!
I can see why this would be her birthday request, that dip looks delicious! Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance I would love for you to come link up your recipe at my Pin Party.
Yummo!! What a great combination!

This sounds good and something I will have to try, although I will be changing the peanut butter to something else…. allergies :).
Thank you! I imagine you try anther butter in place of the peanut butter.
This looks yummy! I make something similar, except I don’t cook it. I just put the ingredients in a blender (mine vary from yours) and I serve it over chocolate ice cream. I grew up in a community where there is a large Amish population. The local ice cream shop sells and Amish Sundae which consists of vanilla ice cream drenched in Amish Peanut Butter. Thanks for sharing! I want to try your version.
Although cooking it does’t take long, I do like the idea of using a blender!
