Peanut Butter Coffee Topping

Dave W.
Here's a simple hybrid of an old favorite topping, for those of you who enjoy your chocolate waffles with a twist. Makes about 1 1/4 cups.

Servings 5 people


  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules (see note)
  • 1 cup peanut butter


  • Combine the hot water, brown sugar, and coffee granules in a small saucepan. Stir constantly over medium heat until the sugar and coffee granules are dissolved. Add the peanut butter, and stir constantly just until evenly warm.


Reduce coffee granules to 1 teaspoon if you want just a hint of coffee flavor.
This is a pretty thick topping. To thin, just add another 1/4 cup of water or non-dairy milk and continue to stir constantly over medium heat until evenly warm.
