Recipe Description:

Turn your food processor into a nut-butter-making machine with this easy recipe for homemade chocolate peanut butter. Try it on toast, spread on a banana or for a treat right off the spoon.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate or chips, melted
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread peanuts in a shallow baking dish. Bake, stirring once or twice, until fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor; add melted chocolate, maple syrup, oil, vanilla and salt. Process, stopping to scrape down the sides (and give your food processor a little rest) as needed, until smooth and creamy, at least 8 minutes and up to 10 minutes.

Recipe Tips & Notes:

  • To melt chocolate, microwave in a bowl on Medium (50%) for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted.
