Equipment Needed

Mixing Bowl: This is the only equipment you will need for mixing your ingredients separate from the pot you will use to boil these ingredients.

Saucepan: You’ll need a medium saucepan to bowl the water and sugar.

Wooden Spoon: Use this to stir the ingredients together.


Main Ingredient 

Peanut Butter: The main ingredient used in this recipe is peanut butter. You can use any brand you prefer or have at home. Peanut Butter gives this homemade spread its color, flavor, and contributes to the creamy texture. 



Brown Sugar – I used 2 cups of sugar in this recipe. If you are running short on this sugar, use an equal amount of granulated sugar.

Vanilla – This flavoring gives the spread an alluring aroma and a delightful taste. Just use an equal amount of maple flavoring if you don’t have any vanilla.


Ingredients Used:

• Brown Sugar – Combined with water and boiled for 2 minutes.

• Peanut Butter – Used as the main flavor ingredient. 

• Marshmallow Crème – Mixed with the peanut butter, sugar mixture, and the remaining ingredients.

• Corn Syrup – Enhances the flavor of the spread and prevents the sugar from crystalizing.

• Vanilla – Adds a delicious taste as well as aroma to the mixture.



1. Combine sugar and water until blended

2. Boil the sugar mixture for 2 minutes.

3. Add the remaining ingredients to the sugar mixture and stir until combined.

4. Set aside until cool. Enjoy. 


Boil Water and Sugar for 2 minutes

The first step in making this Amish delight is boiling the sugar and water for 2 minutes. During that time, the sugar dissolves in the water, thickens it a bit. This caramel mixture is used to thin out and sweeten the church spread.


Marshmallow Crème

Suppose this ingredient isn’t readily available to you?. You can make your own at home using egg white, corn syrup, powdered sugar, and vanilla. 

All you have to do is combine the egg white and corn syrup in an electric mixer until light and thick, then incorporate the other ingredients and beat well. It’ll yield the same great taste.



You can keep this Peanut Butter at room temperature in an airtight jar. If stored in the cupboard, it stays fresh for up to three months and another three to four months if stored in the refrigerator.


If you have not yet tried this delicious spread, you’re missing out. It’s smooth, creamy, and rich with peanut flavor. You can enjoy this spread any time, whether morning, noon or nighttime. Have it with your favorite types of bread, biscuits, or cookies.
