Ingredients

  • ¼ Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 Cup water
  • 1/4 Cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In a medium saucepan, warm the sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and water over medium heat. Once the sugar is dissolved, stir in the peanut butter and whisk.

Cool and refrigerate in an airtight container for up to a month.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
