Kathryn says: On a family vacation, one of my aunts suggested we do a grits cook-off. My mom and I came up with Chocolate Peanut Butter Grits. We poured water and grits into a baking pan. Then, we mixed in a couple tablespoons of Smucker’s Creamy Natural Peanut Butter (http://www.smuckers.com/products/details.aspx?groupId=2&categoryId=11&flavorId=66) and pieces of broken Hershey’s milk chocolate bars. We baked it at about 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Then, we melted butter in a bowl in the microwave and mixed in some brown sugar. We poured the butter-sugar mixture over the grits and baked it for another 5 minutes for a crispy topping. The grits were a hit – sweet and sugary! It’s always a good idea when chocolate and peanut butter come together. My aunt’s shrimp and grits dinner dish was fantastic too.
