Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

When I saw a recipe for chocolate almond butter in the little booklet that came with my Blendtec, I had to try it. Except I didn't have almonds and I couldn't wait to try making nut butter. So I used peanuts. It was so delicious and I was so impressed that I made peanuts into peanut butter.

I added all the ingredients to my Twister Jar:

40 seconds at speed 7 and I had creamy peanut butter:

One of my concerns was how I was going to get all that sticky stuff out of the jar. Not a problem! The Twister Jar comes with a special spatula and look how clean the jar came:

What?! Yep. Amazing!

And if you think that's amazing, wait until you spread some of this deliciousness on warm toast or dip apples in it. Woo boy! You would win Mom-of-the-Year award if you sent some in your kids' school lunches.

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

1 1/4 cups roasted, unsalted peanuts (or almonds)
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons coconut
3 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

Put ingredients in Twister jar in order listed. Use one hand to twist the lid and the other hand to work the controls. Turn it to speed 7 for 40 seconds and BAM! Nut butter.
