Amish Peanut Butter Spread

I waited tables for several years at an Amish restaurant.  All the cooks and many of the waitresses were Amish.  We had to wear dresses with bibbed aprons and our hair up, so I would often be asked if I was Amish.  My kids think that is hilarious since well, I’m not Amish, and they have grown up here, very near a busy Amish community and know the obvious differences in the dress of Amish compared to our  family.  Anyway, the food at this restaurant was delicious!  I would always end my shift with a side of mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans all mixed together.  YUM!  I would top off my mini-meal with the most delicious concoction known as Amish Peanut Butter Spread.

My Better Half bought some for my birthday and I have been savoring it ever since.  It’s a bit pricey for my liking and with 6 of us around here it won’t last long.  So I searched for a recipe and low and behold…Amish Peanut Butter Spread.

Here’s a yummy recipe or you can print it out here:
Amish Peanut Butter Spread
3 1/2 ounces Marshmallow Cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
Pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

This is absolutely faboo!  It’s great to spread on crackers, toast, homemade bread, rolls, or just stealing a snack on your finger.

It would also make a wonderful Christmas gift, packaged nicely and tied with a pretty bow.

  1. Yum, that looks scrumptious! I'm not sure where I'd find corn syrup in the UK but I do have happy memories of making something similar as a child so will have to search out my UK recipe.

  9. Oooh, this brings back memories of my growing-up-in-an-amish-community days. Except the peeps in that particular community always made it with sorghum instead of corn syrup.
    I think I’d like yours better though :)

  16. Carrie — I am wondering where you live.. My last name is Yoder and my husband’s (Amish) family is in Holmes County, Ohio. His father did not join the Amish church, so my husband’s immediate family is NOT Amish, but I get asked that question just because of our last name! I look down at my jeans, t-shirt, & Crocs, and with a straight face, say “Why, yes, I am.” Hahaha! My daughter, who works at a school in Akron, OH, tells people to go look for her buggy parked outside when they ask her that!
    I have eaten this concoction many times in restaurants and even made it once. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Sounds yummy! Could you tell us the shelf life for this?
    Thank you,

  18. Melissa,
    I wish I could give you a shelf life answer…I really don’t know. I would suggest that because it has the ingredients that it does…PB, marshmallow cream, and corn syrup that its shelf life would be similar to those products after they have been opened.
    Nothing lasts very long in this house with teenage boys, so shelf life is rarely tested!!

  19. This looks really good but I’d be leery of using corn syrup in such quantity. Wouldn’t an authentic Amish recipe use something like sugar?


  20. Stopping by from Nifty Thrifty Sunday…

    yum. I love peanut butter out of the jar, peanut butter and fluff sandwiches…anything with peanut butter, really. So yeah–yum. This sounds amazing.

    Could you please tell me how you store this and what is the shelf life,.

  22. Hi Kelly,
    I store this in a Mason jar at room temperature. I wish I could give you a shelf life answer…I really don’t know. I would suggest that because it has the ingredients that it does…PB, marshmallow cream, and corn syrup that its shelf life would be similar to those products after they have been opened.

  23. Hi, I’m your newest follower. Found you on Homemaker on a Dime’s Creative Blogger’s Party & Hop. This recipe reminds me of something my Mom used to make us, we just called it mixup, peanut butter, karo syrup and softened butter. Just mix it all up and dip toast in it.

    I have Amish relatives & my family LOVES this stuff. We don’t live near an Amish community anymore so we were stock-piling when we get back that way. :) the jar I have doesn’t have an expiration date but it does say to refrigerate after opening. This never lasts very long in my home & there’s only 3 of us. Lol

  25. Sounds like youre gaining muscle- but a crucial aspect is that you drink enough drinking water for your exercising you will be doing- in any other case you keep water- which often can make your diet pills fluctuate drastically. Are you primarily lifting or cardio? Gentle lifting to tone cardio is usually to melt away quite possibly the most calories- nevertheless the line is split- when you carry you make muscle which burns a lot more energy anyways- but it isn’t going to show you a drastic pound change- Specially not in lower than one thirty day period.

  26. I just bought 6 pints from an Amish store this week, and I was told to refrigerate after opening after I asked. Upon further review, I found they made their own marshmallow cream, which is made with egg whites. That’s why it had to be refrigerated. With store bought marshmallow I think it would be perfectly fine to go back on the shelf.
