Peanut Butter and Dr. Pepper Float

A fun take on a root beer float. Dr. Pepper and peanut butter make a great combination in this creamy dessert.


One thing my parents never ever did was buy things at convenience stores. It was foreign that people would run in and get a candy bar and a drink when they got gas. But there was one exception, Dr. Pepper and peanuts.


My dad would pour a few peanuts in his Dr. Pepper and then take a swig. Today we are having Dr. Pepper floats with peanut butter fudge sauce.
