This is the chocolate-y version of the peanut butter I shared with you here.
Naturally, I am more excited about this spread. I would add chocolate to anything!
After all, peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in foodie heaven! 🙂
Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread
adapted from Smitten Kitchen
1 1/2 cups unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
Place the peanuts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Roast them in 400 degree oven, for about 10 minutes. They will look shiny as they release their natural oil. Place the peanuts in food processor and grind until smooth. ( see here for more photos ).
Add the cocoa and powdered sugar. Process until everything is smooth. Add the oil, one tablespoon at a time, until you are happy with the consistency.
|They make a nice pair, no? 🙂|
I am a big fan of the hazelnut kind. BIG! But I just couldn’t help myself and not try to make the peanut version, while whipping up the butter. 🙂
