Looking for a quick dessert idea? Grab a pre-made cake or brownies and top it with a drizzle of peanut butter sauce adding a delicious glaze for a homemade added touch. Shhhh, no one will know!

This is the drizzle added to my Keto Peanut Butter Pie. After making it, I added the remaining to a variety of desserts. Tastes so good by the spoonful too!

I sweetened this with a low carb sugar replacement, erythritol. However, you can also use a regular confectioners sweetener if you prefer.

Ingredients Needed

This is a three ingredient recipe, four if you count vanilla extract. Gather the following:

  1. Peanut butter – natural creamy style. Look for two ingredients peanuts and salt. If natural oil pools on top when opening the jar stir to distribute the oil throughout the peanut butter.
  2. Confectioners style sweetener – I like to keep this sugar free. I used Swerve for this recipe.
  3. Milk – any variety will be fine in this recipe including half & half or almond milk. Use your favorite and start with 1/4 cup, then add more if you want a thinner drizzle.
  4. Vanilla extract – adds a hint of rich caramel flavor. Have you made your own yet? You should!

Want to add another layer of flavor? How about mixing in ground cinnamon or maple extract.

How to make peanut butter drizzle

Once you have stirred the peanut butter in the jar measure out 1/2 cup and place in a large mixing bowl.

Sift the confectioners sweetener over the peanut butter and add the milk and vanilla extract. Mix with a rubber spatula until well combined.

For piping on muffins or pie, 1/4 cup of milk is the right consistency. Scoop into a homemade piping bag (plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped), and drizzle over the top of your dessert.

To spread over cake or brownies like a glaze, you will want to add more milk. Add 1 tablespoon at a time to get the consistency you want.
