Our Best Elegant Peanut Recipes for Your Holiday Celebrations

The holidays are the time to bring out your best—to put on that little black dress or bright bow tie. The holidays are also a time to dress up the foods you serve with style and taste.

You may not usually think of peanuts or peanut butter when you conjure up images of elegant things; but here at the National Peanut Board, we beg you to reconsider. We know peanuts are that nutritious grab-and-go snack and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches bring back warm memories of our childhoods. But you may be surprised at just how elegant and dressed-up peanuts can be.

Take a look at our Torito Veracruzano for the cocktail hour, our Warm Peanut-Crusted Goat Cheese with Roasted Pears for a first course, West African Beef Suya Rum Soaked Apricot Compote with Grilled Plantains and Ground Peanuts as a main entrée and Chocolate Peanut Tarts for dessert. And that’s just to begin to inspire your holiday cooking.
