I have two addictions, chocolate and peanut butter. I have been obsessed with peanut butter ever since I can remember. As a child, I ate it right out of the jar (but of course never anymore). I still remember when I discovered Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter from The Peanut Butter Company in college. I would splurge on a $6 small jar and eat it all in a few days. In an attempt to replicate this, I decided my first attempt at making peanut butter would be chocolate peanut butter.

|I got 3 canisters of peanut butter (I made two batches).|
This recipe is low in added oil, salt, and sugar (for a chocolate peanut butter). Most importantly, it is delicious! It is also really cost effective. I got the peanuts I needed in the bulk bin and the other costs were miniscule. I figured out that each jar costs about $2 if you use organic ingredients compared to $6 in the store.
Next time I will try a honey roasted version. 🙂
