So… you want to know what kind of peanut butter was in that peanut butter and jelly snack cake?

It would be these peanuts.


Churned into this.

Then swirled into this.

Oh… with a little bit of this throw in.

And changing this beauty…

…into this.




I think we all know my deep obsession with white chocolate wonderful peanut butter. What we don’t all know is how serious my jar-a-week habit is. Well, I know. Mr. How Sweet knows.

Our bank account knows.

My jeans know.

Something had to be done.

So last weekend I snapped out of my peanut butter addiction denial and whipped up a batch. Then I ate it. And I put some in that cake. Then I ate the rest. It tastes just like white chocolate wonderful. But it’s even creamier. It’s like silk. Silk in peanut butter form.


Don’t mind me. I’m going to go die now.


Homemade White Chocolate Peanut Butter

makes about 3/4 cup

1 1/2 cups dry, roasted peanuts (I used salted)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil

1/3 cup white chocolate chips/chunks/bars, melted

Add peanuts to a food processor and blend until a thick nut butter forms. Stream in oil and vanilla with the processor on, continuing to run it until the mixture is smooth – this took me about 3-4 minutes. You can add more oil if needed, just do it in small increments. Turn off processor, add melted chocolate, and turn processor back on. Blend until smooth.

I kept mine at room temperature for a week, but I do recommend refrigerating the butter if you want to keep it for a few weeks.


This jar was gone by yesterday. Somebody send me to peanut butter rehab!

    Hey, I think someone needs to send me to peanut butter rehab too! I love PB&Co.’s White Chocolate Wonderful, so not only will I love this but it will also save me some money. Yay! I love your pictures – they’re beautiful! :-D

    Oh my goodness! This looks so tasty. I want to make peanut butter pancakes and smother them in this!

    Guess what guess what guess what!!! After years and years of my wishing and hoping, last week USA Foods in Melbourne started stocking PB&Co peanut butters. I’m so excited I could cry.

    (I bet it’s still cheaper for me to make your recipe though :P)


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 7:59 am

      Yay! So happy for you. I have been eating them for years (long before I started blogging) so trust me when I say that this tastes JUST like white chocolate wonderful!!

    Oh you are a bad, bad girl! And I love it :)

    Between you and Jenny’s PB recipes the past two days with white chocolate, I am having a serious “must make this now” type feeling!!

    There is something so perfect about white choc + PB. It’s just…divine!

    This could be a very big problem. A VERY big problem. Endless combinations… Dark Chocolate Almond Butter (with sea salt), Maple Walnut Butter, Maple Cinnamon Pecan Butter, White Chocolate Macadamia Butter…. My jeans have just declared you enemy number one.

    Oh my word! That looks amazing! =D
    I want to make my own nut butters (i’m thinking cashew/peanut, or chocolate cashew, or brazil nut or pretty much any other nut butter!) here because they don’t sell them…how long does it take in a food processor?


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 8:14 am

      It’s going to depend on the power of your food processor, but it takes less than 10 minutes!


      • Gen — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:43 am

        Oh ok! Thanks!!!

    You must work out really hard to be able to eat all this stuff daily Jessica. Please do share your secrets!!

    Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) — March 11, 2011 @ 8:40 am

    Making your own nut butters can be more addicting than buying them. The flavor options are endless so I always keep imagining something new and then you know I have to try it. This looks delicious!


  19. #
    Lindsay @ Pinch of Yum — March 11, 2011 @ 8:52 am

    Holy moly. This looks so good, like I might try to drink it out of the jar. I have always been afraid to try making peanut butter for some reason… maybe because of the quality (or lack thereof) of my food processor. What brand of food processor do you use?


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 8:53 am

      I have a giant Cuisinart. Love it!

    Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat — March 11, 2011 @ 9:03 am

    Oooh this is something I’ve been meaning to try! I adore my food processor and how much faster it is at pureeing things than the blender I used to use. I think I’m going to make some with a whackload of cinnamon.. sort of like PB&Co cinnamon raisin swirl. Yours looks lovely!

    Camille — March 11, 2011 @ 9:20 am

    Oh dear. I should probably never make this because I would probably develop a jar-a-day habit.


  27. #
    Vicky @ Recipe Adaptors — March 11, 2011 @ 9:23 am

    I have a jar of peanut butter in the fridge, but I avoid opening it. Not because I don’t like it, but because if I open it then the whole thing will be gone within approximately 1 second.

    And I only say 1 second because that is the smallest amount of time I can measure on my watch.


  28. #
    Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} — March 11, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    You are killing me. I gave up all nut butters for lent, which means I should probably also give up reading food blogs if I actually want to make it the entire 40 days!


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 9:30 am

      Oh man… that is a sacrifice!


  29. #
    Kylie @ A Hungry Spoon — March 11, 2011 @ 9:25 am

    AH! Pure. Delicious-ness. I’m still working on my first jar of White Chocolate Wonderful–my friend sent it to me for my birthday and I’ve savoring a bite (or 4) every day since :)


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 9:30 am

      Please tell me your birthday was last week. Otherwise I have NO clue how you still have your first jar!

    Erica — March 11, 2011 @ 9:28 am

    I’m not a big white chocolate fan- but I do enjoy it in certain recipes. I’m wondering if I’d like this. Maybe I’ll buy some of the PB&Co version to test it out first! Great recipe- looks so creamy


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 9:29 am

      I promise you would. I don’t really love white chocolate either unless it’s in some sort of other dark chocolate dessert.


  31. #
    Lauren @ Healthy Food For Living — March 11, 2011 @ 9:29 am

    I also looove White Chocolate Wonderful, (and am giving away a jar, if you’re interested! This homemade version will definitely be made soon :).

    megan @ whatmegansmaking — March 11, 2011 @ 9:32 am

    yes! I can’t wait to try this. I seriously need a better food processor. My little free one (won from dave and buster’s if you can believe it) leaks and tends to give up on anything difficult. As soon as I get one, this is on the list. I can’t wait!!


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 9:37 am

      I love my mini food processor too, but it can’t do much more for me that chop veggies and whip up some single servings pancakes, etc. It would die if I tried to make nutbutter!


  33. #
    Amanda-The Nutritionist Reviews — March 11, 2011 @ 9:32 am

    I can’t believe that it actually gets that creamy! How awesome!


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 9:36 am

      It was by far the creamiest peanut butter I’ve ever had!


  34. #
    Jenny — March 11, 2011 @ 9:39 am

    i don’t know how many times I’ve said this but I NEED A FOOD PROCESSOR. How can i make ANYTHING without it? :( looks delicious, i love white wonderful pb!


  35. #
    Liz — March 11, 2011 @ 9:42 am

    I actually bought some White Chocolate Wonderful PB last night – believe it or not it’s sold at Wal-mart down here in SC..I almost fell over!! Hopefully it will last the weekend, but if not, I plan on making this homemade one. YUM!

    Jane B — March 11, 2011 @ 9:53 am

    I have a massive bag of white chocolate which needs using up…my tastebuds thank you in advance for this solution, even if I will be living in stretchy pants for the next little while…

    Kelly — March 11, 2011 @ 10:06 am

    Peanut Butter is so addictive! I swear…I think it is secretly laced with crack.


  38. #
    Jen @ keepitsimplefoods — March 11, 2011 @ 10:07 am

    This looks terrific! I made dark chocolate almond butter a few weeks back and used cocoa powder rather than melted chocolate so that it wouldn’t be runny, but this looks so creamy I’ll have to try making it this way.


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:12 am

      I have always used cocoa powder when making chocolate nut butters too. This was my first time using regular melted chocolate! It certainly isn’t as healthy but it tastes so much better.

    One more reason I have to get a food processor. That white chocolate wonderful pb is my kryptonite.

    Victoria (District Chocoholic) — March 11, 2011 @ 10:18 am

    Do you know that some people have the nerve to say that white chocolate isn’t really chocolate? I think you should make them watch you eat spoonfulls of this delicious stuff until they admit they are wrong.


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:21 am

      Hahahah! Isn’t is cocoa butter or something?


      • Victoria (District Chocoholic) — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:25 am

        Well, here’s the thing: TRUE white chocolate has cocoa butter, milk, sugar, and usually vanilla. Most chocolate makers deodorize the cocoa butter so it has no chocolate flavor, but some, such as Callebaut, don’t, which gives the final product a more complex flavor.

        Now, if you pick up white baking chips at the grocery store, those usually have no cocoa butter, and instead have vegetable oil. This is why they don’t melt as well.

        Wow I’m a nerd. Sorry.

        • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:39 am

          Gotcha! That would be why melting white chocolate chips is always a disaster… I can’t stand them. That’s why I use the good stuff!

    Vanessa — March 11, 2011 @ 10:31 am

    This looks amazing! How would you store this? Does it need to be refrigerated?(Assuming the jar survives a whole day in my house)


    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 10:35 am

      Excellent question! I kept mine out, but that’s because I don’t like cold, hard peanut butter. I do suggest refrigerating it though to keep it a few weeks. I’ll add that in there now. :)
