Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread

I have a magic word to make my kids eat! I know you have that word too...Yea,yea, Its 'Nutella'. The kids and me are crazy over this delicious spread.But that comes with a small problem. This magic word burns a really huge hole in the pocket, yet it is irresistible!

Last week I was looking for some spreads and I found a chocolate peanut butter recipe . I googled for the recipe and variations and found a lot of ways to make this and I chose to adopt the easiest of them!

I make used to make the Regular peanut butter at home and that was until we discovered the taste of Nutella. Now I am wondering why I never thought of the chocolate version of my 'once upon a time' favorite peanut butter!

This recipe hardly takes 15 minutes of your time and you can really feel happy and proud to taste something soooo good,something that is not expensive and can be done in a jiffy!!

I used:

Roasted peanuts - 1 cup[without skin]
Powdered Sugar - 1/4 cup
Cocoa powder, unsweetened - 1/4th cup
Vegetable oil - 3 tablespoons

  1. In a blender jar/ food processor/ mixie, take the peanuts, and grind it well. It will be powdery first .Scrap the sides and run it again.Slowly it will turn pasty.
  2. Add the oil and keep scrapping the sides and run the blender/ mixer/food processor till you get a really smooth paste.
  3. Add the sugar, cocoa power and blend well for a couple of minutes.
  4. Scrape out the contents into a container and enjoy this yummy peanut butter with your bread/ toast/ roti or crackers or as such!

Note :

Lil Dude who is 20 months now, calls this 'Nu-na' .He is still under the impression that this is Nutella and I am no mood to enlighten him!

This is my kids favorite spread so I am taking it with me to Srivalli's Kid's Delight Event - Kid's delight Party and this is my theme for week 2 of Blogging Marathon # 33.....

This also goes to Spicy Foood which is hosting MLLA 64, an event started by Susan and now carried on by Lisa...

Bon Appetit...
