You *butter* believe I’m trying these.
By now, you’ve likely seen butter boards or even cream cheese boards are trending on TikTok. The “new charcuterie” board involves spreading butter or cream cheese on a board or tray and topping with different sweet or savory ingredients depending on your taste. Everyone seems to have their own take on the viral dish, and now TikTok’s peanut butter boards have taken over the FYP as well.
You read that right — peanut butter boards. It was only a matter of time before TikTokers thought to spread the creamy deliciousness on their boards as well for a tasty treat. Butter boards have versatility with many topping options, and peanut butter also allows you to get totally creative with different themes like an OG peanut butter and jelly board or fluffernutter board that will take you back. There are also peanut butter boards that are safe for your pup at home to try, so really everyone in your fam can enjoy.
If you’re wondering how to make a peanut butter board, all you really need to do is spread some peanut butter, whether it’s creamy, crunchy, or even a nut alternative like almond butter, onto your board. That’s your base and the toppings you sprinkle on are where you get to have fun and be creative. For some inspiration, look at these 12 peanut butter board ideas on TikTok to see which direction you’d like to take your snack in.
While humans can enjoy this treat, this dog-friendly peanut butter board can be for your fur friend as well. This is a great treat to make for your pup who is always eyeing what you’re doing in the kitchen. According to TikToker @wellnesspetfood, just spread on their fave peanut butter with dog-friendly toppings like blueberries and strawberries.
Since your toppings will already be sweet, you may want to go with a no sugar added peanut butter on your board like TikToker @mr.monx. From there, add in some strawberry jam to your peanut butter swirls and sprinkle strawberries, blackberries, and crushed up peanuts. Finish it off with a drizzle of honey.
A peanut butter board that won’t disappoint is this PB&J version from TikToker @caughtsnackin.

This one is nostalgic AF.
For a little savory kick to your peanut butter board, go with this smoked version from TikToker @chilesandsmoke. This tutorial even shows you how to make your own peanut butter with crushed up peanuts. To get the smoked flavor, just add bacon bits, roasted marshmallows, hot honey, and dark chocolate shavings.
Perhaps fluffernutter was your choice of peanut butter sandwich in elementary school. If that’s the case, try this fluffernutter board from TikToker @grilledcheesesocial. Just add on marshmallow fluff to your peanut butter spread. That’s really all you need, but for this particular recipe, add on some banana slices, dried strawberries, dark chocolate chips, honey, and flakey salt on top as well.
Reese’s lovers know that chocolate and peanut butter are the supreme duo, so try this chocolate peanut butter board. TikToker @desird_health uses chocolate hummus to spread onto the board next to the peanut butter, but you can also use chocolate spread or even Nutella.
