Help ! I need somebody ...

Dear friends, dear readers, dear lonely visitor, dear YOU ! 
This post, much more than all the previous post, is for YOU ! 
I need YOU !

Super dupont. French version of  Uncle Sam ! 

Here what I bought some month ago, in july, during the American Week, in my supermarket : 

I bought it because it's a typical american product, here, in France. No one eats it. For us, this is so american ! 
And now, I absolutely don't know what to do with it ! 

Of course, I found a lot of recipes with it.
But I'm looking for a REAL recipe, a recipe you, friends, reader or visitor, use to bake to your children your family or even just for you. 
And as always, please, something EASY ! 

A lot of recipe use chocolate too and as I'm totally crazy about M&M's, I think this weeding could work. 

So, today, I'm appealing you : please, help me and write me YOUR usual recipe in comments sections or in my mail address : axellethefrenchcook@gmail.com

I don't promise I will bake it all. I'm not saying there will be a winner !!! :) 
I'm just asking you for help. 

Thank you so much for your participation ! 


  1. Hi Axelle :)

    Our family makes the following 2 recipes every year for Christmas as part of our cookie baking. The Buckeyes can be messy to make, but they don't have be perfect looking to taste good. Also, the Buckeyes can be made in advance and stored in the freezer.


    Peanut butter is also very good on a cheeseburger. Sounds weird, but it really does taste good.

    Can't wait too see what you make.


    Dear Axelle-The ONLY truly best american thing to do with your lovely jar of peanut butter is to get soft white bread. In France, that could be a problem. You could substitute a baguette but if you use a baguette, you MUST remove the crust. Then spread a good amount on the bread. More than you think. Then spread grape jam or jelly on the peanut butter (ok. Strawberry jam or raspberry may be substituted). Finish the sandwich with another slice of soft white bread or crustless baguette. Et voila! The other optional recipe is to buy celery-with the leaves on-wash it, break off a stalk, hold on to the the leaf end and scoop some peanut butter straight out of the jar with the stalk end. Take a bite and chew. Et voila!
    Superdupont is amusing.
    I guess you could also make peanut butter cookies but it has to be a simple recipe and you must make the crosshatch marks with a table fork.
    Have fun! Regards-Jamie

    1. oh yes. If you prepare the celery by spreading the peanut butter thickly in the groove of the stalk and place raisins-one by one-on the peanut butter, and serve it to your children as an after school snack, you now have the recipe we call "Ants on a Log". Bon appetite! jamie

    2. oh yes, again. Slices of apples with peanut butter is also delicious. As is the above mentioned sandwich minus the jelly and jam but with slices of banana instead. And here in the United States I understand that woman who are "with child" will often crave the above mentioned sandwich minus the jam, jelly, banana but with slices of sweet cucumber pickles! I never craved one....Suddenly a peanut butter cheeseburger doesn't seem so odd. jamie

  3. PB&J is a big thing, too, here: tu prends du pain (carré, of course) et tu mets dessus du peanut butter et ensuite par-dessus tu mets de la gelée (de raisin, le plus souvent, ou de fraise). C'est ignoble :D mais c'est ce que les enfants mangent comme goûter ou comme déjeuner, même. Moi, je déteste le peaunut butter donc je vais pas te donner d'autres recettes, sorry, parce que ce truc est interdit, chez moi ;)

  4. I emailed you a recipe

  5. Dear Axelle, Long ago when our now adult children were little I used to make easy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookie Bars:
    2 sticks of butter or margarine ( that is 16 Tablespoons or 1 Cup of butter)
    1 and 3/4 Cups graham cracker crumbs
    2 and 1/2 Cups powdered sugar
    1 Cup peanut butter (smooth is best)

    MIx all ingredients together and spread into a buttered 9"x13" pan.
    Melt one 12 oz. bag of chocolate chips and spread on top. Chill in refrigerator for about an hour. Then cut into squares and enjoy. These keep best in a covered container in the refrigerator if you don't eat them all up at one time. ;-)
    love and prayers, jep

  6. I would make either peanut butter cookies or peanut butter balls. Here is my beloved grandmother's recipe: http://idiotskitchen.com/index.php/2011/12/peanut-butter-balls/

    I also love these cookies but my husband would prefer the plain old peanut butter cookies with the crosshatch pattern mentioned above. http://idiotskitchen.com/index.php/2012/05/peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-oatmeal-cookies/

    Have fun!

  7. Absolutely try peanut butter cookies - there are so many recipes on the web!

  8. This looks like a fun and elegant recipe for using peanut butter:

  9. Peanut Butter and Homemade Jelly bars - not just for kids. Also Groundnut Stew - the ingredients sound weird, but it is so delicious. I made both of these and everyone loved the soup and the bars.
