Enjoy a dollop of peanut butter with a bowl full of cold sliced apples. Apples come in many different varieties; Fuji, Empire, Gala, Golden Delicious, Red delicious, Rome, Granny Smith, Macintosh -- Choose the apple of your preference and enjoy it with one spoonful of peanut butter. Apples such as; Rome, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, and Empire are widely used for baking but , Red delicious, Gala, Fuji (used for baking too,) and Macintosh apples are the ones that most people use for eating.

If you tend to like sweeter snacks then go for the sweeter apples such as; Gala and Fuji and if you like snacks that are mildly sweet go for the slightly sweet apples such as; Red delicious, and Macintosh (which is both tart and sweet in taste.)

You can also heat the peanut butter up in a microwave for about 5 seconds to smoothen out the texture and make it easier to dip the apples in.

Spread some peanut butter on a slice of toast or sweet bagel. Peanut butter is flavorsome on a slice of warm toast. When peanut butter is warmed the texture becomes very smooth and the flavor becomes richer. If you want to taste peanut butter at its best then try melting it. Toast the bread of your choice in a toaster then spread some peanut butter on top of it and place in the microwave for about 3 seconds. Do not leave the toast in there for too long because it will become hard and very tough to eat. Also, be careful when eating warmed peanut butter because it is very hot and can burn your lips, tongue, and fingers.

Spread peanut butter on baked Toast. Lightly toast the bread in the oven first then remove from the oven and quickly spread a tablespoon of peanut butter on it, next place the toast back into the oven.
