National Peanut Butter Day is January 24, and we’re gearing up for it with some of Huntsville’s most unique peanut butter creations.

If you’re a peanut butter lover (like we are), you’ll want to add all seven of these to your Huntsville must-try list.

1. Peanut Butter and Jelly Phyllo at Cotton Row

It’s an award-winner for a reason. Cotton Row’s creation tucks peanut butter and jelly inside crispy golden phyllo dough for an upscale take on the nostalgic treat. Served with housemade chocolate ice cream, peanuts and a raspberry coulis, this one’s at the top of our list.

2. PB&Yay! Burger at ToyBox Bistro

Now for something savory. ToyBox Bistro is known for their playful menu with unexpected flavors—including their PB&Yay! Burger with peanut butter, ghost pepper cheese and bacon. It’s a burger that’s anything but plain.

3. Fat Elvis Cupcake at Mason Dixon Bakery & Bistro

This one may not look unique at first glance, but just wait until you take a bite. The brownie cupcake has a gluten-free Oreo-like cookie inside along with peanut butter, and it’s topped with a peanut butter frosting. It’s one of Mason Dixon’s most famous creations!

4. Peanut Butter Chocolate Time at Charlie Foster’s

Charlie Foster’s is a go-to spot for lattes and cold brews, but if you haven’t tried their acai bowls, you’re missing out. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Time combines an acai base, crunchy honey granola, bananas, strawberries, Nutella and plenty of peanut butter for a sweet treat that’s basically good for you (right?).

5. Nutty by Nature at Pizelle’s
