1 cup granulated sugar

3 Tablespoons cornstarch

¼ teaspoon sea salt

3 egg yolks, in a separate bowl

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

In a small saucepan, add milk and peanut butter. Over medium to high heat, melt peanut butter in milk, stirring often. You do not want milk to burn.

Once peanut butter is melted. Slowly add milk mixture to dry ingredients in medium saucepan.
Continue cooking over medium heat until mixture boils.

After it becomes thick, cook an additional 2 minutes longer.

Best if it sits overnight so flavors can combine.
