I first saw this in a Saturday Times recipe section; I'm a lover of peanut butter, but not a fan of sweets so I have modified this to match my personal taste.

The original recipe used 200g of granulated sugar and no salt or other spices.

I made half of the mixture as the recipe, the remaining half I mixed with a heaped tablespoon of Sambal Udang Bercili Ranggup - Crispy Prawn Chilli; the chilli version is superb and what I would make in future!
