Nutty, creamy (or chunky!) peanut butter is associated with fall lunch boxes, and with classic autumn treats like thick, chewy peanut butter cookies. I grew up in a family that always had a jumbo-sized jar of natural peanut butter in the fridge (do you refrigerate peanut butter?), and the quintessential movie night snack was peanut butter popcorn. Read on for my family's favorite peanut butter and honey popcorn recipe, as well as more favorite peanut butter treats and snacks. Peanut butter and jelly cookies, granola, fudge-topped oatmeal cookies, PB & fruit "sushi", and one-ingredient ice cream with a dollop of peanut butter — they're all here!
