The main ingredient is of course peanut butter. I used Planter’s peanut butter that we picked up at Target. I’m at Target just about every other day. I should have it listed as much second home. I honestly should have a VIP shopper’s parking space I’m there that much (wink wink). It’s one of my happy places. I love that I can pick up everything from my groceries to make-up to my favorite black long sleeved t-shirts on the planet and YES everything else in between. I also love that I can save money using their red card in addition to finding great coupons. I even have them texted to my mobile. We’re like bff’s texting and all.
