    Homemade Chocolate Peanut-Butter Spread


    Recipe Description
    A very easy, very delicious spread for toast, buns and bread.
    Preparation Steps:
    Use boiled & cooled water, as the mixture will stay fresher longer.
    You will need a cup or small bowl, a teaspoon and a tablespoon for mixing.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    1-2 minutes
    Ingredients:
    Needed:
    Smooth (or crunchy) peanut butter
    Icing sugar
    Cocoa
    Water (boiled & cooled)
    (few drops Vanilla, if desired)
    Serves:
    Makes about 1/2 cup
    Directions:
    In a cup, place 1 heaping tablespoon of smooth peanut butter, 2 heaping tablespoons of icing sugar, 1 teaspoon of cocoa and add a few drops of boiled & cooled water. Add vanilla, if desired.
    Stir vigorously until blended and add more drops of water till consistency is reached for spreading.
    Spread on bread till desired thickness. Delicious!
    Refrigerate the remainder of the spread...
    (if there's any left).
    Spread could also be used to frost brownies, or as a candy center (if made into thicker, rolled balls).

    Yes, is that powdered sugar?

    Think I might do this and roll them in rice krispies(partially crushed).......think it will be 'sticky' enough?

    Yes, the icing sugar is powdered confectioner's sugar.

    This spread is the same as, or better than Nutella spread.
    It would make good fudge balls too; just add less water and mix with hands, rolling into small balls. Then roll the balls in coconut, crushed almonds, peanuts or pecans, rice krispies. The fudge balls could be made as peanut butter balls (just omit cocoa), or as chocolate balls for more variety.

    Sounds delicious! Is the cocoa unsweetened or like Nestle Quick? I love Nutella, so I'm sure I'll love this! Thanks so much!

    I just use plain unsweetened cocoa in the recipe.

    It's quite versatile, and could be used for various Christmas chocolates too, or just some quick bon-bons for yourself or for company.
    The only limit is your imagination.
    Another way to make this is to wrap a ball of it around a marachino
    cherry or a nut, then roll in powdered sugar or crushed nuts/coconut, even dipped in melted chocolate (for added decadence).
    When I first made this recipe, the taste reminded me of the Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
