White Chocolate Espresso Peanut Butter
This recipe for homemade White Chocolate Espresso Peanut Butter makes the perfect spread for your toast, or to eat off a spoon when a sugar craving hits!
Ever since I made my White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter, I’ve been dreaming up tons of extravagant indulgent peanut butters and almond butters that I want to make. I’ve already said before on the blog how much I love making my own nut butters – but if your new here and you’ve never done it, just know – it’s so rewarding, and so much easier than you would think!
You can add whatever crazy flavors you want, use whatever nuts you want, do mixes of nuts – anything goes!
Clearly, I like making chocolatey peanut butters, as evidenced by the aforementioned White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter and the classic Chocolate Peanut Butter. I’ve dreamt up tons of other flavors as well…they just haven’t been made yet.
But, considering my love for peanut butter, they will be. I try to eat healthy-ish, so these nut butters are somewhat of an indulgence for me to eat for breakfast, but a quick spoonful also makes a wonderful lazy dessert. So good! Be careful though – it’s wildly addicting, and far too easy to just keep eating spoonfuls!
You may think this sounds weird. White chocolate, peanut butter, and espresso aren’t things you think would go together, and you definitely wouldn’t think of eating whole espresso beans. But guess what? It totally works. The sweetness of the white chocolate masks the bitterness of the espresso beans, so you get pure coffee flavors along with the crunch the beans provide. It’s wonderful!
Oh, and this spread was just begging to be spread on a waffle for breakfast. If I can get my caffeine hit in a peanut butter, I’m going to do it: killing two birds with one delicious stone!
White Chocolate Espresso Peanut Butter
- Yield: 2 cups 1x
- 2 cups roasted (unsalted peanuts)
- 4 oz. high quality white chocolate (melted)
- 1/4 cup espresso beans
- Place the peanuts in the food processor for about 5-7 minutes or until the mixture is completely smooth (it will go through stages, such as powdery, paste-y, and then turn into a big ball. Don’t worry, as the oils are released it will continue to break down until it gets creamy and delicious! Just let the processor do it’s thing). Scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl every 2-3 minutes or as necessary.
- Once the mixture is at the right consistency, add in the melted chocolate. Process until combined. Add the espresso beans and pulse a few times to break up the beans just slightly. Place in sterilized jars and refrigerate for up to 2 months, or keep at room temperature for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
Recipe adapted from my White Chocolate Pretzel Peanut Butter
I don’t think this sounds strange at all – just amazing! I have some (store-bought) espresso almond butter in the pantry that just sounded so insanely good to me, but I’ve been forgetting to try it. Now I just want to drag out my food processor and make a bunch of nut butters on my own!
I’ve been wanting to make my own peanut butter for so long and haven’t gotten around to doing it yet. This combination sounds so good! I’ll definitely refer back to this post when I finally make my own.
This looks delicious. I really wish I could grab a spoonful right about now! Such a fun combo of flavors
This sounds soo good! I’ve been wanting to make different spreads and butters for awhile, but I haven’t tried it yet. It seems easy enough, though. Might have to give this one a try! :)
Oh wow….this sounds amazing! I love different flavoured peanut butter. I’m a sucker for a dark chocolate peanut butter, but I cannot wait to try this out. Awesome flavour combination.
This looks and sounds crazy good! I have a few PB recipes in my drafts and one I’m posting later this week. I love white choc and make sure to use it as much as I can in my homemade spreads, too! :)
WHAT. IS. THIS. MAGIC.
You are a genius.
Yum! I’ve always wanted to make my own peanut butter so I could make cookies with it! Have you ever tried making your own nutella?
I haven’t! It’s definitely on the to-do list though :)
Although I love plain peanut butter, Its fun to try different flavors. This one looks ridiculously good! I can imagine it would taste great mixed into a cookie recipe.
My favorite peanut better is white chocolate wonderful by peanut butter and co. I never thought of making it myself. Thanks this looks delicious.
This is basically genius.
I am of the opinion that coffee works well with basically everything (so not strange AT ALL) and while I was reading your post all I could think of was how much fun it would be to bake with all your creative nut butters!
OK, this looks absolute fabulous!! All of the best flavors in one peanut butter!
I love making homemade pb! Yours looks so smooth and creamy – I almost can’t believe it didn’t come from a jar. I will have to try experimenting with different flavors like this.
This doesn’t sound weird at all! It sounds fantastic! I really need to try making my own nut butters… so easy and I bet they are delicious : )
Um, oh, wow. I am obsessed with white chocolate and I love making my own nut butters. The addition of coffee beans sounds so cool! I like the idea of the caffiene crunch in the middle of all that sweet smoothness.
I’ve always wanted to make my own peanut butter. I pinned this recipe. It sounds so amazing!!!
Love the flavors of expresso and peanuts, I must make this recipe soon!
OMG. I have no words other than I want to eat the entire batch!
This sounds so good. Pretzels, peanut butter and chocolate=best combo ever! :)
Making peanut butter variations sounds so amazing!
Wow. I’ve been thinking about trying to make my own peanut butter recently, and I think this pushed me over the edge. What a delicious flavor combination!
OH MY GOD. This is amazing!
Yum! Looks amazing as always:)
Oh my! White chocolate PB – where was this all my life? LOVE!
OH MY GOSH!!! White chocolate AND espresso! Such a fantastic idea combining both flavors in your own peanut butter! A MUST try!
This sounds but very delicious and very dangerous! I cannot wait to try it!
This sounds like heaven! I just recently tried the Peanut Butter & Co. white chocolate peanut butter spread and I totally fell in love with it. It was like peanut butter and fluff all in one! Adding coffee just sounds like a no-brainer :)
Oh yum, this sounds ridiculously good!
Just discovered your site. So many amazing recipes!!! I’m having fun taking a look around.
What an amazing recipe, I can’t wait to make this!!
Can I just eat it directly off of a spoon?!
I definitely did, haha!
I have made my own nut butters and I buy a jarred chocolate peanut butter (as a substitute for nutella which I am allergic to). Why I never thought to flavor my home made nut butter, I don’t know. This is a great idea! Thank you for the recipe!
Oh my goodness does this look amazing! I especially love the espresso flair.
Healthy white chocolate espresso peanut butter, that sounds promising and something that now I have to try. Thanks a lot for sharing the recipe with us.
Just love love love this!!!
I’m all over anything to do with peanut butter. Love the combination of flavours here. Will definitely be eating spoonfuls of this soon :)
Ah, I’m so glad I have access to my food processor again–let the nut butter times begin! I’m also so glad I stumbled across your post via a scoop.com blog (I hadn’t heard of them but they reposted one of my own recipes, so talk about good fate!). I can’t wait to try another great nut butter twist–hope you’re having some amazing PB&anything sammies with this ;)
What wonderful flavors all mixed into one! Yummy!
