Say what?!?! Yes, it is a thing. Homemade peanut butter combined with white chocolate… this is heaven on earth!
Yep, you read that right. White Chocolate Peanut Butter. Outrageous? Yes. Good? Definitely!!
Peanut butter and chocolate. Familiar combo. But peanut butter and WHITE chocolate? Never had it, never even heard of it. But with so many things, once you google it, you get I don’t know how many hits. But I didn’t dare google this. Maybe I am the first, maybe there have been many many before me who have tried and tested this combo. Which most likely is the case. I’d like to be the mastermind behind this, though I seriously doubt that. But hey, I can have those dreams just once in a while. Because, really, this is good. I’m so chuffed!
OK, enough about that. Thing is, it’s ridiculously easy. Just take 200 g (7 oz) unsalted peanuts and put them in a food processor or high power blender.
Process until completely smooth. Mine took about 3 minutes, but it may depend on the peanuts and the food processor/blender. After 3 minutes, it looked like this:
Melt 50 g (1.8 oz) sugar-free white chocolate.
Add the chocolate and 1/2 tsp of salt to the peanut butter and blend until fully incorporated.
If you like, you might add a tsp vanilla extract, but that’s optional.
The white chocolate peanut butter will be quite liquid. I keep mine refrigerated. It’s still fairly spreadable, but if you leave it out of the fridge for 10 minutes, it will be just right.
It’s so good, our youngest and I are currently fighting over it. Although it is really good as it is now, I’ll probably add more white chocolate to it next time. Once a chocoholic… Well, maybe not. I’m having a hard time staying away from it as it is now. All I want is getting my spoon out and devour it all…
