5 Best Peanut Butter Desserts in NYC

In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day and the beginning of National Peanut Butter Month, we’ve compiled a list of the best peanut butter desserts in New York City.

1. Levain Bakery Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip

With lines curling around the block, clearly everyone and their mother knows about Levain’s gooey fist-sized chocolate chip cookies. But did you know that they come in dark chocolate peanut butter, too? Nah didn’t think so.

Brave the line or get one delivered right to your doorstep here.

2. Doughnut Plant Peanut Butter and Jelly Doughnut  

With its oozing, tart black berry jam center, eating one of these will definitely leave you with some shirt stains. But honestly, we’d eat Doughnut Plant’s pillowy peanut-studded yeast doughnuts plain, so we’re not going to complain. There’s also a banana cream filled version for all you Elvis lovers out there.

3. Billy’s Bakery Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie

Pure peanut butter fluff in a graham cracker crust with a peanut rim, topped with peanut butter cups and a chocolate drizzle. It doesn’t get better than this.

Treat yourself to a slice (or five) for yourself here.

4. Butter & Scotch Trifecta Pie

Oh wait, it might! Brooklyn’s boozy Butter & Scotch Bakery kicks it up a notch with the addition of salted pretzel to their dark chocolate peanut butter pie, lovingly dubbed the ‘Trifecta.’

Spare yourself the subway ride to Brooklyn and get a slice here.

5. Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butters

Okay, so it’s not technically a dessert, but nothing’s really stopping you from eating an entire jar of any of Peanut Butter & Co’s flavored peanut butters with a spoon. Our personal favorite is the Bee’s Knees, a peanut butter blended with honey (!!!). With flavors from chile to cinnamon raisin, and a slew of other nut butters, there’s something for everyone.
