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.

Yes.

Please.

 

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!

    Wow, looks addicting and amazing!! My jar-a-week habit probably isn’t very economical either…which means I should make this :)

    Peanut Butter rehab is not necessary, this behavior is completely acceptable…. or at least that is what I like to tell myself. This PB looks amazingly smooth and creamy!

    This recipe makes me want to run out and purchase a big food processor. I only have a little one and don’t think it could handle this project. I just was checking out a few other blogs and Picky Palate has another decadent peanut butter recipe…she blended in smashed Oreos and white chocolate chips…talk about calories!

    • Jessica — March 11th, 2011 @ 11:04 am

      I know!! It looks unreal. I am dying to buy some oreos and crush them into this, but that also means I need to make another batch of the peanut butter. Dangerous!

    I cannot believe i’ve never had white chocolate wonder before. I’m much more of a dark bitter chocolate girl so I guess that makes sense.

    Looks so creamy! Homemade PB is the bomb.

    So help me please! Do I have to wait until after I get a ring to start making all your recipes? How did you do it???

    I never thought that someone else could share my deep love and obsession with peanut butter. My number one comfort food is a jar a peanut butter and a spoon, and it’s something I have put into practice more than a few (hundred) times :). For some reason I have yet to make my own peanut butter, perhaps because it could get very dangerous :). I also have to say that ever since I started reading a few weeks ago, I’ve become a bigger and bigger fan. Thanks for another entertaining post :).
