Homemade chocolate peanut butter is the best thing on earth. I have never made any nut butter before and for sure this is not going to be my last.

I made my homemade chocolate peanut butter with cocoa powder to add some antioxidants as well as some deeper rich darker color. It work perfectly but no so perfect when I attempted to add some melted chocolate to it. It become hard and no of a spreadable consistency so I skipped it on this batch.

I was super impressed at how easy it was to make peanut butter, but then again, I had an amazing piece of kitchen equipment to help me with the job. KitchenAid truly has the most amazing kitchen counter appliances and this 16-cup KitchenAid Food Processor is no different.

The power of this KitchenAid food processor is truly amazing. It literally took about 3 minutes to make this peanut butter, maybe a minute longer because I added the cocoa powder, but that is it. I also made some almond meal before making the peanut butter and that took about 10 seconds. This KitchenAid food processor is the bomb.

I picked a grey one to match my kitchen, since I leave it on my kitchen counter at all times. I use it quite a bit so there is not need to store it away. I am so glad my friends at KitchenAid were able to provide me with this elite food processor. Most definitely a huge upgrade from my previous one. The performance, quality and features are outstanding.

There is also an attachment box that comes with the food processor that accommodates all of the blades needed for you chopping, dicing, grating etc

I attempted to add some dark melted chocolate to the mix but the peanut butter become quite hard so this time around I skipped it and I liked it much better.
