Taste by Spellbound

Whats on the menu: Snickers Fudge Brownies

Taste by Spellbound likes to keep their customers on their toes. While the bakery has a line of goodies, such as their signature truffles, always on hand, the dessert case at Taste by Spellbound is changing constantly. If you’re lucky, you’ll visit one of the shops on a day when they have these Snickers Fudge Brownies. Made with a base of fudgy brownie, then nougat, a sprinkle of peanuts, an oozing layer of caramel, and topped with rich chocolate ganache, this bar is what a peanut lover’s dreams are made of.

What’s on the menu: Chocolate Peanut Butter Scones

You know a cafe is worth visiting when a piece of cake is considered a side dish to any lunch order! At Truffles Bakery, there are plenty of nutty goodies to choose from. While the Billionaire Bar is an absolute classic, don’t overlook their scones. Their Chocolate Peanut Butter Scone in particular, is super flaky, crumbly in all the right ways, and filled with chocolate chunks and spots of peanut butter throughout.

What’s on the menu: Skippy’s Dare

Family friendly restaurant, Randy’s Wooster St. Pizza, has a little bit of everything going on. One of the many standouts on its diverse menu, is Skippy’s Dare: a white pizza, covered in crispy bacon, creamy peanut butter, and provolone cheese. While the combination may initially make you scratch your head, this is a dare worth taking. Between the sweetness of the peanut butter, saltiness of the bacon, and mellow sharpness of the cheese, this pie is one to go nutty over.

Donut Crazy is a business that takes pride in living up to its name. Each day, customers can look forward to picking up one of “The Dailies”: a collection of more traditional donuts that the bakery keeps on hand, year round. On this list, you’ll find the PB&J. Each month however, Donut Crazy also changes up its rotating menu, appropriately named, “The Crazies”. On March’s list, you’ll find the Peanut Butter Explosion. This chocolate cake donut is topped with a mound of peanut butter buttercream, peanut butter cereal, dulce de leche, and even more peanut butter. Explosion, indeed.
