Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread Recipe

Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread Recipe

Mittu loves peanut butter so tried this chocolate version of peanut butter, it tasted yummy.I loved eating it as such, best as a spread for bread, chapathi, and dosa too.If you get roasted de-skinned peanuts then making peanut butter is just a breeze.Making homemade spreads like these are handy during the busy morning hours.

This time I used unrefined cane sugar, and there was no difference in taste, the taste is more like the jaggery version.

  2. Now remove the center white part  and discard it(this step is purely optional but I recommend if you are going to give this peanut butter for kids), amma says its pitham not sure of what its called in english.

My Notes:

  • The texture is purely your choice, if you want it crunchy then grind less.I wanted smooth peanut butter so grinded accordingly.
  • Add odourless cooking oil.
  • I have tried with jaggery syrup and honey too.
  • If you are using jaggery as such then use cleaned jaggery.I used cane sugar this time.
  • You can even use peanuts with skin but that will give a slightly bitter taste.
  • I used my mixer jar, you can use your food processor too.
  • This time I made slightly crunchy peanut butter.
  • I didn't add cooking chocolate, if you prefer you can add 2 tbsp melting chocolate
