The chocolate version is like a spreadable Reeses peanut butter cup…I think that’s enough of a description on it own

Make sure you choose a good quality, dark vegan chocolate. I chose a dark spiced chocolate block which had cardamon, chili, sea salt and peppercorn, star anise and cloves. I strongly recommend doing this because the spices linger at the back of your mouth when eating this spread, and makes it so special and delicious.

For the regular version

-3 cups peanuts, roasted

For the chocolate version

-2 cups peanuts, roasted
4-5 squares (30g)good quality dark, vegan chocolate
1/2 tsp coconut oil (optional)
1 tbsp rice malt syrup (optional)

For the regular version

-Blend peanuts in a food processor or high speed blender until it turns smooth.
Stop and scrape down the sides every so often if necessary. Add in a pinch of salt if desired.

For the chocolate version

-Blend peanuts, chocolate until smooth. Add in some coconut oil for a smoother consistency if desired, and taste and add sweetener if needed.
Store nut butters in air tight jars, no need to refrigerate.
