It's peanut butter jelly time! We won't even start the conversation about indulging our childish fancies because there's nothing juvenile about peanut butter. It pairs perfectly with everything from chocolate to hand-formed beef patties (yep, it's true). So seize a spoon and duck into the pantry or try one of these great peanut butter dishes in restaurants across Houston. (Photo: Flickr/Dano)

We have the sneaking suspicion that Youssef Nafaa, proprietor of Coco's, Mia Bella and Saffron, is a peanut butter fiend himself. Only a true enthusiast could have come up with the Coco's Classic, a peanut butter, jelly and banana stuffed crepe or the Belly Buster smoothie, made with chocolate gelato, peanut butter, bananas and peaches.
Couples who eat peanut butter together stay together. A single slice of cake at Empire is big enough for two, so be sure to share a moist, decadent serving of chocolate peanut butter. Take a few deliciously chewy peanut butter cookies to go for an at-home jelly sandwich.
Peanut butter, peanut butter banana, peanut butter and jelly and peanut butter honey sandwich are all rotating flavors in this Austin import's case of kooky ice creams. If those flavors aren't available on the day you're experiencing a craving, try a scoop of Mexican Vanilla plush with peanut butter cups.
