Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

Yesterday, the kiddos and I went for a stroll and hit some stores along the way. I stocked up on some chocolate bars ... I went a little crazy. I should really learn to not go food shopping when I'm hungry. Anyway, today I discovered a great way to use those chocolate bars. My two favorite loves combined into one amazing spread.


Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

1 (3.5 oz.) bar dark chocolate, broken in pieces (or 1/3 c. dark chocolate chips)
1 t. coconut oil
2 c. roasted salted peanuts
2 T. brown sugar
1/2 t. vanilla

I used dark chocolate, but I suppose you could experiment with milk if you like.
 Combine chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl.
 Microwave in 30 second intervals until melty and smooth. Set aside while preparing the peanuts.
 Put peanuts in a food processor.
 Process for about 4-5 minutes or until smooth.
 To the peanut butter, add chocolate mixture, brown sugar and vanilla.
 Process for another 2 minutes.
 Pour into a jar and refrigerate.
 It firms up very nicely after it's been in the fridge for a few hours.
 Honestly, I haven't even put this on anything yet because I just keep eating it with a spoon...
Enjoy!
