Handsome Carver’s Chipotle Peanut Butter Truffled Mac & Cheese

I hope you got a chance to try my first recipe, Peanut Butter Chocolate Vanilla Cupcakes, with Handsome Carver’s Flavored Butters. Since I gave you something decadent and sweet. I thought I would switch gears and make something savory; I love mac and cheese.

It’s definitely the best comfort food. One of the things I love about Mac and Cheese is that you can come up with your own variations. I love to challenge myself in the kitchen, so of course I had to share my new Mac and Cheese recipe with you. It may look complicated to make but it’s pretty easy once you get going. Just have all your ingredients ready and measured. This is something I do to stay nice and organized.

INGREDIENTS


8 ounces dry elbow macaroni

2 cups parmesan & herb bread crumbs

1 tablespoon cracked pepper

Finley chopped parley for garnish

2 cups cheddar cheese shredded

2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded

1 cup havarti Cheese shredded

1 cup cream cheese

3 cups table cream

½ cup butter

1 ½ cups Handsome Carver’s Chipotle Peanut Butter

½ vegetable stock

4 table spoons pure truffle oil

 
CHIPOTLE PEANUT BUTTER BÉCHAMEL SAUCE

In a large pot over medium heat melt butter and cream cheese. Once melted slowly whisk in cream, vegetable stock and truffle oil. Once combined add in Mr. Carver’s Chipotle Peanut butter and stir until well combined. Add fresh cracked pepper to taste.

 
CHEESE

Combine all three shredded cheeses and set aside in a large bowl with the bread crumbs separate

 
PASTA

Bring six cups of lightly salted water to a boil. Add elbow macaroni and cook el dente. Rinse well in cool water.

 
THE MAIN EVENT

In an 8×8 casserole dish layer ingredients in the following order; noodles, béchamel, cheeses, breadcrumbs (lightly sprinkle). Generously layer in béchamel and cheese finishing the top layer with breadcrumbs and parsley to give the top a cheesy golden crust. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.

 
Trust me, it’s absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to share my next recipe with you.
