BAKED Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread

So I might loose all my foodie cred for telling you this but I don't like Nutella. I honestly don't understand the appeal. When I saw this week's recipe was chocolate hazelnut spread I was not excited. However, I do love peanut butter and when I had the idea to replace the hazelnuts with peanuts, then I was super excited!

I urge anyone who loves the chocolate peanut butter combo to do this. It is so easy and delicious. You just whir peanuts, cocoa powder, sugar and a bit of oil in the food processor and you come out with this rich and yummy spread. 

I also used the spread to make scones, based on the Nutella scones from baked. Instead of chopped hazelnuts, I used mini chocolate peanut butter cups. Insane!

Check out what some of the other bloggers did here.


  1. I don't understand not liking Nutella, but I love your version. Especially how you used it in the scones - sounds divine!

  2. OMG!!! I do love nutella, but the idea of switching out the hazelnuts for peanuts does sound wonderful! I would totally make it with peanuts! Great idea.

  3. Sounds like an excellent excuse to have Reese's for breakfast to me! :)

  4. I love this idea! Sounds delicious! Good for you for trying something different!

  5. I love your idea, and want to try it with almonds.... or macadamia nuts. I don't like Nutella either!

  6. i am not a HUGE nutella fan, but i had fun making my own. still not health food, but a little more natural than the stuff in the jar!
