Chocolate Peanut Butter / Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread



 For day 2 themed under dips,sauce and spread in BM#72 is a kid's friendly spread with peanuts and chocolate.
My kids love Nutella,so wanted to give a try at home with peanuts instead of hazelnuts.The spread came out so creamy and delicious,took only few minutes to make.

Use of store bought roasted peanuts make the work much easier.But here I used the plain roasted peanuts and made it.

It stays good and firm at room temperature,storing in the refrigerator solidifies the spread.But becomes soft in 10 minutes once you take out from the refrigerator. I used the semi sweet chocolate chips,but feel free to use the dark chocolate or cocoa powder.

Also I added some powdered sugar to neutralize the bitterness from the chocolate.If you are a fan of bitter sweet of chocolate then no need to add.
