peanut butter

If you love a Cadbury's creme egg or Reese's butter cups are your fave, then we have good news for you.

Reese's have created peanut butter creme eggs and we are oh so very delighted.

Reese's new eggs come in packs of five and each contain individually wrapped milk chocolate eggs stuffed with a salty, smooth peanut butter filling (could it get any better?).

Reese's now do a peanut butter creme egg and ooh it sounds amazing

What's more, they come with a little purple spoon so you can scoop out all the good stuff before eating the chocolate shell.

As always though, there's a catch.

The peanut butter eggs are only available in America right now, so if you know anyone heading over there, make sure to nag them so they'll bring you back a butt-load.


If you're looking for a sign that you should just quit Lent altogether, then this is it.

Yep, it might only be the first day, but when you get a load of these new Cadbury's bars, we're not sure will power will stop anyone from shoving these things into their mouths.

The chocolate comapny has just launched *drum roll please* a Dairy Milk Mint Oreo flavour and a Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Oreo flavour. 

Cadbury launch peanut butter and mint Oreo bars and we're dribbling


Brand Manager at Mondeléz International, Joanna Dias, said: "We are delighted to add these two sumptuous new flavours to the classic Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo, giving chocolate lovers even more ways to enjoy their favourite treat.

"Tasty and irresistible, the peanut butter variant will appeal to those who love the current peanut butter trend, while the delicious mint flavour will no doubt delight those who love a classic combination".

Keep a look out for them as they will be in all major shops nationwide (then stash them in your room until Lent is over).


Apparently you either love or hate peanut butter, and considering that it's the nicest thing on the whole damn planet, we can only assume that those who hate it simply haven't tried it.

There, we said it.

Smooth or chunky, regular or organic; there's little we wouldn't do to get our hands on a jar of that stuff.

And here are just ten things you'll know if you're pretty much obsessed with peanut butter.

1. People who argue the pros and cons of chunky over smooth are mere amateurs, and have yet to attain true connoisseur status.

"Shut up and eat it, or get the hell out of my kitchen."

2. You get used to talking through a Sahara-dry post-peanut sandwich mouth, and it's a price you're willing to pay.

"That sound? Oh. it's just me peeling my tongue from the roof of my mouth."

3. When you discovered the combination of apple slices and spoons of peanut butter, your whole world changed.

"You gotta listen – the dryness of the peanut butter mixed with the crispness of the apple is what this life is all about."

4. You have been known to happily eat it by the spoonful without the aid of bread, crackers or apples.

"Look at me all you want."

5. You've weighed up the cost of jars, and decided that splashing out on a giant tub for a tenner once a week is worth it.

"It's economical, and I'm a genius."

6.  Reece's Peanut Butter Cups are your today, your tomorrow and your forever.

"Remember a time when Ireland didn't have these? It was our darkest hour."

7. You've tried a PB&J sandwich, but secretly lamented the fact you'd have to take up valuable space with some damn jam.

"I'll eat it, and it's good, but this is an unnecessary combo."

8. You've added so much peanut butter to so-called healthy smoothies, you've basically negated the whole process.

"I'm drinking liquidised PB and there's nothing no one can do about it."

9.You have – more than once – sat and considered how different your life might be had you been born with a nut allergy.

"There but for the grace of God, go I…"

10.The fact that some peanut butter can be considered *relatively healthy* never fails to bring you joy.

"Pass that jar. It's time to start looking after myself."



Some of us will do absolutely anything we can to ensure that our caffeine needs are met. Once upon a time one unlucky SHEmazing staff member even went so far as to include coffee in her porridge. Needless to say that was one recipe that we didn’t feel the need to share with the world. 

However, the latest snack option for caffeine lovers sounds far more appealing. 

Say hello to caffeinated peanut butter. Creamy, delicious and yes filled with enough caffeine to ensure you probably won’t need that midday nap.

A creation from the people at Steem, the spread allegedly contains the same amount of caffeine you would get from two cups of coffee in two mere tablespoons. 

A two tablespoon serving has 170 milligrams of caffeine, FYI. Mashable reports that the peanut butter concoction was originally created as a hangover cure. Chris Pettazzoni, one of the creators, said that they’ve been working on the recipe for quite a while.

Apparently the reason it took them so long was because the first recipes had a caffeine content that was too high. 

"The release of energy was so much better from the PB that I stopped drinking coffee completely." 

This is in part because the slow digestion of peanut butter means that the caffeine is released into your body slowly rather than in one intense shot.

While the caffeine content may be off-putting for some, the fact that it is made with all-natural peanut butter and no artificial sweeteners is enough to get our attention. 

You can try it for yourself if you’re willing to part with €4. Steem peanut butter is available to buy on Amazon and the brand’s official website.

We’re feeling pretty tempted right now to be honest.


For many of us, all we need for a dreary mid-week evening to improve massively is a sweet treat.

Here at SHEmazing! we can be of the belief that cake and a good cup of tea can be responsible for making a bad day infinitely better. Sometimes you just need to treat yourself. 

The only down side can be that often our favourite snacks can leave us feeling a little bit guilty, but when we think of comfort food kale smoothies are not exactly top of the list.

This chocolate and peanut butter cake however sounds like exactly what we want. 

Not only is this absolutely delicious (trust us, we have sampled a slice or three) but the recipe comes from #fitspo queen Kayla Itsines. You can enjoy this cake absolutely guilt-free and by including protein you're actually adding important nutrients in your diet. 

½ cup cashews
½ cup walnuts
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
8 dates, pitted
2 Tbs Cacao Powder

½ cup of natural peanut butter
2 scoops of Whey Protein Isolate (Peanut flavoured) or 60g of powdered peanut butter
½ cup  Cottage Cheese
½ cup natural yogurt
2 Tbs Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tsp Coconut Oil
2 Tbs Maple Syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Topping:
2 tbs coconut oil, melted, 1 tbs maple syrup, 2 tbs raw cacao powder and 1 tsp vanilla.


  1. Combine all crust ingredients together in a food processor until they form a crumble and then put it in a pan.
  2. Blend the cottage cheese, peanut butter and natural yoghurt together. Add in the remaining filling ingredients.
  3. Make the chocolate topping by combining all ingredients together.
  4. Pour the filling mixture on top of the crust. Smooth down with a spatula and pour over chocolate topping. Chill for one hour.
  5. After the pie has chilled, take it out and remove from the pan.
  6. Eat all of the cake!

We'll probably never be as content with life as baby Ethan is in this video.

Mum Gina Gardner first posted this video back in 2004, but it's gone viral again this week and we HAD to share it with you. Gina came upon her three-year-old daughter Emily and 18-month-old son Ethan calmly painting themselves in peanut butter, and luckily for us she had her camera on hand to capture the moment.

While Ethan looks hilarious enough as it is, it's his reaction to being caught out that really had us laughing:

You can watch the full video here… prepare to fall in love with Ethan the Peanut Butter Monster.

Whether you’re trying to gain a few kilos or shed a few pounds, your calorie-intake has a lot to do with helping you achieve your goals.

Here are some health foods with surprising amounts of calories:

Just because they are tiny, it doesn’t mean they’re harmless. A sushi roll can have up to 500 calories – not very good for your waistline.

Dried fruit
With over 100 calories per 160g serving, your calorie-intake can go up rather quickly when you have dried fruit. If you’re trying to have less calories then opt for fresh or frozen fruit. You can eat in larger amounts at fewer calories.

Low-fat peanut butter
When manufacturers reduce the fat in peanut butter, they replace it with sugars. This means your ‘low-fat’ peanut butter had the same amount of calories as the original. You might as well stick to the regular stuff because you won’t eat as much since the original is much more filling.
