Chocolate Peanut Butter

Quick Post:  This is a new favorite! The kids inhaled this perfect after school snack, either served with apples or spread on a piece of toast. Make sure you start with the smallest amount of sugar first and taste for sweetness, adding more if necessary. This didn’t turn out too sweet – I used about 7 tablespoons. Thanks for reading, enjoy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread – adapted from 52 Kitchen Adventures

  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup unsweetneed cocoa powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 T canola oil (or peanut oil if you have it)
  • 1/8 – 1/4  tsp fine sea salt

Place peanuts in food processor or blender. Process until they become almost liquified (be patient: first, it will grind up, then make a ball shape, then become smooth, and then look wet – it took at least 10 minutes). Add in cocoa power, powdered sugar, oil and salt and blend for a couple of minutes until thoroughly combined. Add more salt to taste and a little more oil if too thick. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. It may need stirring before serving.
