Add-ons and Substitutions 

Easy Homemade White Chocolate Peanut Butter Recipe

Here are some great ideas for add-ons and substitutions you can consider for this recipe:

  • Unsalted Peanuts. This recipe calls for roasted and unsalted peanuts, although you have the option to use roasted and salted peanuts. If you do, just remember to exclude any additional salt from the recipe.
  • Raw peanuts. Alternatively, raw peanuts can be used by roasting them in the oven for a brief period before incorporating them into the recipe.
  • Creamy Peanut Butter. You can also use unsweetened peanut butter instead of peanuts. Skip the food processor and the salt if your peanut butter already has some. Any kind of peanut butter works, as long as it’s unsweetened.
  • Dark Chocolate. If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, substitute it for dark chocolate for a less sweet taste.
  • Almond bark. While high-quality melted white chocolate is recommended, if unavailable, you can substitute it with white almond bark or candy melts for similar results. 
  • Vanilla Bean: For an even richer vanilla flavor, use vanilla bean paste or scrape the seeds from a vanilla bean instead of vanilla extract.
  • Cinnamon or Nutmeg: Sprinkle in a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg for a warm and cozy undertone to your peanut butter.

How to make this White Chocolate Peanut butter Spread

To make this great recipe, start by chopping your white chocolate bar into equally sized small pieces. Melt, either using the microwave in 10-second intervals or using a double boiler on your stovetop –refer to some tips on melting chocolate. Set it aside.

In a food processor, combine peanuts, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend all the ingredients until you achieve a smooth mixture with a spreadable consistency, noting that the processing time may vary based on your food processor’s power. Incorporate the melted chocolate into the peanut butter mixture, mixing thoroughly until well combined.

Expert tips for the best peanut butter with white chocolate

A few tips for this no-bake dessert recipe:

  • Opt for fresh, high-quality ingredients for best results.
  • When melting white chocolate, use a gentle heat method like a double boiler or microwave in short bursts, stirring frequently. Avoid overheating, as white chocolate can easily seize.
  • Customize the texture by adjusting the blending time. For a chunky peanut butter, pulse the mixture for a shorter period. For a smoother consistency, blend for a longer time.
  • Store the finished peanut butter in airtight containers to maintain freshness. If refrigerating, bring it to room temperature before serving for optimal spreadability.
  • Don’t hesitate to get creative with mix-ins. Consider adding extras like dark chocolate chunks, coconut flakes, or even a swirl of raspberry jam for a unique flavor profile.
