  1. What kind of peanut butter did you use, Trevor? I think I’ve heard that it works better with “regular” peanut butter, like Skippy or Jif, than it does with natural stir-in-the-oil peanut butter.

  2. Kath, that is a good question. I used “regular” peanut butter. In fact, it was the Aldi brand. I don’t know how the natural type would work. My guess is that it would cause problems unless you worked really hard to completely incorporate the oil into the peanut butter.
