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!

    Oh my gawd. You just combined two of my favorite flavors EVER, in one jar. (Thank you for leaving out my third favorite, though: garlic.) This looks especially amazing because I no longer let myself buy White Chocolate Wonderful. ;)

    I love PB&Co peanut butters, the honey one is awesome too, but the White Chocolate is our favorite! The kids eat it with apples, bananas, my daughter likes to heat it and put it on her chocolate ice cream. At $6 a jar in the PNW it gets mighty expensive. I never even thought of trying to make my own, how frigging easy it sounds. Well now I am going to make my own. Thanks! I wonder if I can make a peanut butter banana? I am going to try.

      I think you could make a single serving of a banana peanut butter, but probably not more after that since bananas go bad quickly. You could always put some banana extract in a homemade peanut butter though!

    My food processor is out. Off to the store for white chocolate.

    I might have eaten the last of my PB Co with a spoon on Wednesday. Maybe I did. Refilling the jar with this in about 20 minutes.

    White Chocolate Wonderful is by far my favorite!!! My brother lives in NYC and went to the PB&Co. cafe to get me a whole bag of jars straight from the source for Christmas. I feel like I need to go buy a food processor now so I can go make this.

    • Jessica — March 14th, 2011 @ 2:46 pm

      All nut butters harden in the fridge. There is really no way around it, other than leaving it out at room temperature. If you think you will consume it in a week or two, leave it out. Otherwise, refrigeration is suggested because the oil in nuts can go rancid.

    Jessica! I just stumbled across your website, and I am SO impressed. Thank you :)

    I made this with unsalted peanuts, which might perhaps account for the low amount of oil that I needed to use. I wasn’t able to find good quality white chocolate this time around, so I used a bar of Lindt Excellence White Chocolate Coconut. The PB lacks a perfectly smooth texture, but if you like coconut, give it a try :)
