    Perhaps, Peanut Butter & Co? We've never been, but the desserts sound delicious.

    My favorite upscale peanut butter-inspired dessert is EMP's Chocolaate Palette with Peanut Butter and Popcorn: http://www.flickr.com/photos/11863391@N03/5644044844/in/set-72157626429193975

      Not the largest PB fan, but I love Bouchon Bakery's nutter butter cookies.

          There used to be a place called Zozo's in LES that served this homemade fluffernutter ice cream, pb ice cream with swirls of pb and fluff. It was so good, and i have yet to find anything that comes close.

            I absolutely adore the house-made "nutter butter" cookie sandwiches at Cafe Mae Mae. Truly decadent and delicious.

              You should also check out the salted peanut cake doughnut from the Doughnut Plant. Chelsea location only.

                Try the dark chocolate peanut butter chip cookie at Levain Bakery. It is sublime.

                  My vote would be for any of the peanut related flavors at Doughnut Plant.

                  Vegan places sometimes feature a chocolate peanut butter cake I've seen listed as a "peanut butter bomb". It's not delicate, let's just put it that way. Teany used to carry it, but I'm not sure the revamped reopened location has it.
