This might be one of my best dishes yet; my husband was pretty taken aback by it – which says a lot as he’s very fussy! Annabelle liked it, but did spit out some of the chunkier peanuts. I’ve noticed recently how she is getting a bit funny with certain textures (just like I was as a child) and also how she hates having dirty hands! I think I have a little diva in the making! If your child is also a little fussy over textures, I’d recommend using a smooth peanut butter so that it’s a smoother texture.
