Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter

I love how easy it is to make nut butter in the food processor.  You only need a few ingredients and you can get creative and mix it up! Melissa, this recipe is for you :)



  • 1 1/2 cup peanuts (unsalted)
  • 1/4 heaping cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp oil (I used canola, don’t use olive!)
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract



  • Process peanuts in the food processor until peanuts break down into a paste, scraping down the sides as necessary, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate chips either in the microwave or in a double boiler on the stove.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  • With the motor of the food processor running, slowly pour in the oil and process until a smooth butter forms.
  • Add in the melted chocolate, and process until combined.
  • Add in the cocoa powder, salt and vanilla extract, and process until well-combined.
