This recipe has been wandering through my mind for over a year now.  It would peek in unannounced, reside for a day or two, and disappear for a few weeks, only to return when I least expected it.  The combination is so unconventional that I feared giving the recipe a life outside my brain.  What if it doesn’t taste as good as I have imagined?

I envisioned the recipe as a geometric if-then statement.

The more I thought about the combination, the braver I felt.  My courage soared when I learned that Jif sold a mint chocolate peanut butter a few years ago.

So I finally gave life to my idea, and it tastes just as good as I had imagined!  If you link mint chocolate, and you like chocolate with peanut butter, be sure to try this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 10 drops mint extract
  • 1 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon honey (or other sweetender, to taste)
  • 1 tbs melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbs water

Directions

Blend all ingredients in food processor until it reaches your desired consistency.  I left my peanut butter course, like a Blind Spot Nutbutter blend, but you could definitely make it smoother by leaving it in the food processor for longer.
