Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread

Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

I was cruising through Pinterest one day and I stumbled upon the most simple of recipes. It literally showed how to make your own peanut butter with a variety of mix ins, like mixed nuts and CHOCOLATE!

I had to make this with my boys! And of course they licked plenty of spoons.

All I needed was:

2 cups of roasted and salted peanuts
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
2-3 Tb peanut oil

And a food processor!

We started by pulsing the peanuts in the food processor. We took turns pushing the button and let it spin like crazy at other times.

It got pretty creamy. We liked it extra creamy so we streamed in some peanut oil.

This stuff is great on warm toast. I also stuffed some inside of Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes that I made on the same day.
