This 2-ingredient homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter is made right in your food processor!
We survived the apocalypse! The world is still fully intact and at least no one I know was raptured. Good times.
My favorite thing to celebrate with? Chocolate. I mean, how can chocolate not make someone happy? It’s like the food equivalent of a smile. It gives hope. Oh, chocolate. How I adore you.
But what makes chocolate ever better? Peanut butter. Those two were a match made in heaven. I’ve been dreaming about nut butters and all the combinations I can come up with, and this one has been on the top of my list. Creamy, melted milk chocolate mixed in with homemade peanut butter? Heaven on Earth. Tell the rapture to that THAT.
It’s so easy, yummy, easily doubled, or tripled…or halved, if for some unknown reason you don’t want to eat this stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It tastes like a melted Reese’s except better. Don’t fight it, just make it.
Chocolate Peanut Butter
- 4 cups peanuts roasted and salted*
- 2 cups 12 oz. milk or dark chocolate, melted
Place the peanuts in the food processor for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and drippy. Scrape down every 2-3 minutes or as necessary.
Once the mixture is at the right consistency, add in the melted chocolate. Process until combined. Place in sterilized jars.
If you prefer to salt/roast your own peanuts, feel free to do so. Roast the peanuts yourself by roasting them in a 350 degree oven in a single layer on a sheet pan for 30-35 minutes. Salt them to taste and proceed with recipe.
