Peanut Butter Pudding is a creamy homemade pudding made with peanut butter that is a perfect snack or after-dinner treat. Top it with some homemade whipped cream and sprinkle with peanuts for some added crunch. Try my Peanut Butter Cookie Dessert for another peanut butter lover’s dessert!
I love to take a giant spoonful of peanut butter right from the jar and eat it! I guess eating this pudding by the spoonful would be a little classier in front of others, and not to mention, more delicious! It’s a creamy dessert that is delicious on its own or with some added toppings, like some chocolate candy pieces, peanuts, or caramel to jazz it up a bit.
“Excellent for peanut butter lovers! Can be served with whipped topping and/or nuts.”
1/3 cup white sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a saucepan. Stream milk and half-and-half into the saucepan while stirring to dissolve the sugar mixture.
Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring continually, for 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat; stir peanut butter and vanilla extract into the milk mixture until smooth.
Divide the mixture into 4 small serving dishes and refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes
