Spain: I Want To Go To There

October 1st, 2010

I’m off to spend two whole weeks in Spain, with side trips to Portugal and Morocco. Yay! Looking forward to some adventures, both culinary and otherwise. Although I’m a little concerned for peanut butter availability over there… I’ve gotten quite a few sad messages from fellow CPB lovers abroad who can’t get their hands on the good stuff. That’s so sad! Maybe I’ll have to bring some to-go packs along for the ride?

Here’s holding onto hope that I find some CPB overseas. In the meantime, here are some links to keep you busy while I’m gone. Enjoy! I’ll miss you!

Serious Eats Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Peanut Butter? – Apparently I still have lots to learn!

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dutch Baby – Written by the ever-adorable Cakespy via PB & Co’s new All-Star Recipe Blog

Chocolate Peanut Butter Slices – CPB Bars made with coconut? I’m intrigued.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake – Warning: Do not click this link unless you want to be visually tortured by insanely delicious-looking cake.

Cookie Pie – Made with peanut butter M&Ms. MMM&MMM!

Ghost Peanut Butter Cookies – Chocolate-Covered Nutter Butters? Yum. Chocolate-Covered Nutter Butters with googley eyes? Awesome!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Burgers – Somehow nicknaming macarons as burgers makes me like them more.

Bananarchy - I tweeted this link but it’s too good not to re-post. There is a Banana Stand in Texas inspired by Arrested Development. You’ll feel anything but blue eating a banana covered in peanut butter and coconut.

The Chocolate Peanut Butter Flickr Group – If you’re looking for more CPB inspiration while I’m gone, be sure to check out (or join!) my flickr group which is regularly updated with your CPB creations that stream right here on the blog. If you have a really great photo, it might even get featured in a post.

Hasta luego, mis amigos!

  • Wow!!! Have an amazing trip!!! I’m so jealous! Spain is quite possibly my favorite country on earth. I’ve lived there twice. You can get peanut butter there, and some other nut spreads (almond butter and others I forget…). At least, I never had trouble finding it. But I was also warned before I went that it would be difficult to find some. So I’m sure that warning is based on some truth. :)

    Taste the churros con chocolate. Maybe bring some peanut butter with you to the cafe so you can dunk the churros in the peanut butter before you dunk them in the chocolate.

    Can’t wait to see photos of your trip in a few weeks!

  • Have fun in Spain!! Based on my experience in Europe, you will find very little peanut butter and lots of delicious Nutella. Yum.
