White Chocolate Peanut Butter

After hearing about all the "gourmet" flavors of peanut butter, I wanted to try making my own.  (Since I can't really get it over here anyway.... and ordering it online would be costly).  For about $1, I was able to make a little over a cup of White Chocolate Peanut Butter.  I used dry roasted (lightly salted) peanuts, real white chocolate, and a touch of sunflower oil, to help everything incorporate and mix better.  (Start with 1/2 teaspoon and add more if needed).  A food processor is needed for this recipe (or maybe you could use a blender).

I was thinking that this would keep best in the refrigerator, but after being in there a few hours, the peanut butter is completely solid and non-spreadable.  Maybe keep it in the fridge and take it out a while before using?  It might be ok to keep it (in a sealed container) at room temp; I'm not sure.

1- 1/2 cups dry roasted (lightly salted) peanuts
3- 1/2 ounces (100 grams) white chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon sunflower oil

Place the peanuts in the food processor bowl and process until finely ground.  Add white chocolate and process.  Add oil, 1/2 teaspoon at a time (I only used 1 teaspoon), and keep processing until peanut butter is formed and consistency is as desired.

Yum! I just saw this done on a video for a fancy-schmancy blender I want and thought I should make my own! Do you think it was the white chocolate that made it solidify?

That's what I was thinking, LadyJP- probably the white chocolate. I keep it at room temp now- the kids are going through it so fast, I don't think it'll have time to spoil
