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.
This is a great idea. I saw something similar just now, they called it peanutella! Isn’t that fantastic.
At first I was looking for a homemade Nutella recipe but none of them were as straight forward to make as this 🙂
