Homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread

April 6, 2014

peanut butter chocolate spread:

Cinnamon sugar. Cake & ice cream. Summer & lemonade (with a splash of vodka).

Some things just go together.

Milk & cookies. Beer at football tailgates. These kids.

Meant to be.

Also, a few things that I miss, being so far from home & all, like BBQ in Kansas City. S’mores at the Lake.

And my favorite… chocolate & peanut butter.  Kind of obsessed.

peanut butter chocolate spread:

I can’t stop making homemade peanut butter. I eat way more peanut butter than any adult should (the first step is admitting the truth), which made me think I should try to make it. It looked so easy…and it is! Love it when that happens.

Literally, it’s just peanuts. Homemade peanut butter led me to this chocolate spread. It’s basically two parts peanuts to 1 part milk chocolate. (I tried semi-sweet, but I prefer the milk chocolate…& I still need to try it with dark chocolate.). Add a pinch of salt and vanilla to deepen the flavor and there you have it. A perfect match.

Like a margarita on Cinco de Mayo.

And wine in my glass at 5pm…it just needs to happen.

You get the idea.

peanut butter chocolate spread:


2 cups dry roasted peanuts
1 cup milk chocolate chips
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a food processor, combine dry roasted peanuts & milk chocolate chips. Process for 5 min or until desired consistency is met (time may vary based on your food processor – when in doubt, keep going). Add salt and vanilla. Process for a few more seconds.
  • Serve on toast, wheat thins, graham crackers, a spoon.

*After a week you may want to refrigerate…mine has never lasted that long!

    I cannot wait to try this myself! I can just see all the peanut butter variations in my family’s future.
