I used this on chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. You have to vary the water and sugar based on how thick you want it. It turns out great!

Too thin for a cake, which is what I wanted it for. It separated a bit and soaked in rather than staying on top. Still yummy though!

Delicious glaze - this was perfect for Peanut Butter Bread by Nola Laughery from this site. I used chunky peanut butter and a little smooth. I like this because you can control the consistency by how much of each of the ingredients you use in fact I didn't measure a thing!

I used with the Guilt-Free Chocolate Cake that is also on this website. No one believed that the cake was "diet!"

Perfect. I used about 8 teaspoons of water and a tablespoon and a half of peanut butter. This gave me a rich flavor and a thinner consistency to use for drizzling. Thanks! :)

This was absolutely delicious! I was having trouble getting mine to drizzle. It may have been the brand peanut butter. So, I added a few drops of water and it was fine. After I did that I realized that I could get drizzle type lines more likely by piping it on with a pastry tip slowly. I will do that next time. Either way also make sure whatever you are drizzling it on is completely cool, because it will melt some if not. I will definitely try this on some other desserts and with the other technique. Thank you submitter!

I used this recipe to top my rice crispy granola bars, and it turned out very well. If the glaze is too thin or separates, you can easily adjust the sugar or peanut butter to make it a little thicker. It tasted great!

I only give this 3 stars because when you follow the recipe as written, it is way too thick to drizzle, and the recipe needs to be adjusted. However, I love the concept of it! I added more water to thin it out, and more peanut butter to give it more peanut butter flavor - and it was the perfect thing to drizzle over our chocolate cake!! YUM!!
