My daughter found a recipe for chocolate peanut butter and it is divine! The two of us could not stop dipping our spoon in the jar all day and at the end of the day we were fighting to scrape the sides.
Some of my children have a gift for writing so I had one of my daughters write a Father's Day poem to go with the chocolate peanut butter. This is a fun and simple gift that your dad will love. Who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?!!!
16 oz lightly salted dry roasted peanuts, (you can also use salted party
nuts, but the peanut butter will be saltier)
1 cup chocolate chips (any kind you like)
Pour nuts into a strainer to get all of the extra salt/crumbs off that settle in the bottom of the container. Put nuts into a high tech blender or food processor and slowly turn to high. Nuts will go through a number of stages before it becomes very thin and runny. Once it has turned liquid, add the chocolate chips (you do not need to melt them first) and blend until combined. Pour chocolate peanut butter into seal-able containers and put in refrigerator. Putting it in the refrigerator will give it the consistency of fudge (yum) and leaving it out will keep it pretty runny.
To print the gift tag below, left right on the image and then right click. Save the image to your computer.
NOTE: It is important that you left click first to get a high res image!
I recommend inserting the image into a word document, power point, or program that has a ruler. Scale the tag so that it measures 4" across the bottom and then print the gift tag on card stock paper. Cut gift tag out leaving a small white border along the outside edge. Punch a hole and attach to a jar of homemade chocolate peanut butter with a spoon.
