Chocolate Peanut Butter

This post should really be called. "How to make your toast taste like a Reeses Peanut Butter cup."
'Cause that's what's happened here.
My breakfast has turned into dessert.

And it's awesome.

In fact, I'm not gonna lie to you, I just broke out a spoon and dug into this stuff.
Yea... it's addictive. 

I should really trade my spoon for an apple slice.
Peanut butter, chocolate and apples... yum.
Or bananas.... peanut butter, chocolate and bananas..... even better. 

I'm not gonna bother trying to convince you how good chocolate peanut butter is, it speaks for itself.
Just make this.

Chocolate Peanut Butter
Makes: about 1 1/2 cups
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

Note: I didn't want this to be too sweet so I didn't add a ton of sugar. Feel free to add more salt or sugar depending on your taste.

1½ cup natural peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened good quality cocoa powder
½ cup powdered sugar (add more of less depending on preference)
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp peanut oil (I just used the extra oil from the peanut butter jar)

1. Add peanut butter, cocoa powder, sugar and salt to a food processor. Blend on low speed until smooth. Slowly add oil through the feed tube with the mixer still running. Blend another minute or so until everything is incorporate. Enjoy on toast or straight from the jar!


  1. Ooohh, with a recipe like this I can save money and avoid buying the store bought version of this. Sounds good to me. I can just imagine how good it would be to use this in peanut butter cookies, bars, frosting, oh the possibilities for this are endless. I have a linky party on my blog every week called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link this up.

  2. Oh, have mercy! It would be really hard to put the spoon down. Could you use it as a topping on ice cream? (please say yes...) Thanks for linking up on Recipes I Can't Wait to Try!

  3. I have a PB addict in the house and she would LOVE this. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That sounds amazing! I can't wait to try it.

  5. It would be fantastic on ice cream! Thanks everyone for stopping by.

  6. Thanks for linking this up at Sweets for a Saturday. I hope you'll be able to join in again.
