We’re all about healthy breakfasts. Somewhere between Nutella and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, this is as purist as chocolate spread gets. By going DIY, you avoid the added sugar, salt, preservatives or trans fats that might be lurking in factory-produced versions and bulk up on the good stuff, like antioxidants and protein. There’s really nothing to it (no roasting or grinding nuts), just careful shopping.

The bonus: It’ll heat things up between the sheets. A breakfast for better sex, hell yes!

What You Need

12 squares organic or 50g good quality dark chocolate
4 squares organic or 15g good quality milk chocolate
¼ cup homemade peanut butter (available from health shops)

Method

Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl and place over a pot of gently simmering water – no steam should escape and the bowl shouldn’t touch the water.

Once the chocolate is fully melted, stir in the peanut butter until well combined and serve on a baguette or toasted raisin bread.

Cook’s note:
Because the Peanutella is made with pure chocolate, not cocoa, it will thicken and eventually set on standing, so either serve warm or reheat over a pot of gently simmering water.
