Chocolate peanut butter

20131013_193354

Yes, it’s true. Dreams do come true. Especially when they involve my two favorite things: chocolate and peanut butter. I hope you all have your food processors ready. This beats Nutella. This is like Nutella on steroids!

Yields: 1 medium jam jar

What you’ll need:

  • 2.5 cups of Raw XL Virginia peanuts
  • 1 T honey
  • 2/3 cups of chocolate chips, melted

How to:

You’ll want to roast the raw peanuts in the oven first. Grab a baking sheet and evenly spread out peanuts. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, turning about 3-4 times during roasting. Don’t forget to turn, otherwise peanuts could burn on one side. When peanuts are done, take out and let sit while you are getting everything together, about 5-10 minutes. In the bowl of a food processor, place peanuts first. Process for 30 seconds and add honey. Keep processing for another couple of minutes. (If processor gets hot, let it rest in between.) Once smooth, stream in melted chocolate chips. Process for another minute. Presto!
