One of my all time favorite ways of using Creamed Honey is with peanut butter on toast. Sometimes if I have 2 pieces of toast, I put peanut butter on one and honey on the other and put them together to mix and warm each other. Then pull apart and eat each piece separately. The honey oozes into the peanut butter and the result is simply fabulous. Make sure the toast is warm and you use crunchy peanut butter.
