- Stir with a silicone spatula until the mixture starts to boil. Boil the mixture for 1 minute and then remove the saucepan from the heat.
- Add peanut butter and vanilla extract to the mixture. Stir with a whisk or silicone spatula to combine until the peanut butter has melted. It should be a smooth consistency.
