Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter

Once I won a tub of milk chocolate peanut butter and it was the most amazing (and most addictive) stuff ever. So silky and smooth but definitely still a peanut butter – I don’t know about you but with flavoured nut butters I often find that they can lose the flavour of the nut completely?! This was like snickers in a tub. It was shortly handed over to be hidden away from me…

So obviously, now knowing how dangerously addictive chocolate peanut butter is, and that I have even less self control with the stuff than I do with regular nut butters, the logical thing to do was to make my own. Sometimes I really do have a love hate relationship with recipe making stuff.

Anyhow. This chocolate peanut butter is TOO GOOD to not make. Plus it’s the easiest thing to make ever. It requires no fancy ingredients. And it also requires next to no time. You can thank (and hate) me later. *insert halo emoji*

Ingredients:

Makes 220g

  • 70g semi-sweet dark chocolate
  • 2 tsp neutral flavoured oil (such as rapeseed or sunflower)
  • 140g natural peanut butter
  • pinch salt (opt)

Directions:

  1. Break up the chocolate and place in a microwave safe bowl.
  2. Gently melt in the microwave on low-medium heat. Stir in the oil, followed by the peanut butter and salt, if using. Mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Transfer to a jar or tub of choice.
