5-ingredient dark chocolate peanut butter-in a glass jarI don’t think there’s any family that loves peanut butter as much as we do. We only eat the real peanut butter. All-natural and no sugar added.  We smear peanut butter on our muffins for breakfast.  Our 4-year-old son, Leo, dips his carrots, broccoli and raw zucchini in peanut butter for lunch.  I also serve homemade summer-rolls with spicy peanut butter sauce.

 

So, now you know how crazy my family is about peanut butter.  Leo suggested that I make chocolate peanut butter while chewing down a muffin one morning.  “Is that a good idea?” he asked. Of course! When peanut butter meets dark chocolate, it’s heaven on earth.

I know you can probably buy a jar of chocolate peanut butter in grocery store.  However, this all-natural and no-sugar-added version is not only healthier but it tastes better too.

Sidenote: It was fun making this short video, although it did involve a lot of work.  Just like my video production teacher said, “pre-production takes much more time than production”.  I have to say, each frame and clip led me to learn something new with nothing wasted.  With the help of my husband and son, I was able to accomplish this short video.  I’m sure it will go smoother and better every time I make another video.  

I’d love to hear your comments on the video.  Good or bad? It helps me grow.

Recipe Notes

This dark chocolate peanut butter can be served right away. To avoid a mess when transferring the peanut butter from the food processor into a jar, I recommend refrigerating the food processor with the peanut butter for a couple of hours. With it’s being stiffer from refrigeration, it will be easier to serve and transfer.
