Source: "The Food Processor Bible/Pleasures of your Processor," by Norene Gilletz
Yield: 2 cups

2 cups peanuts, salted
2 to 3 tbsp. oil

Process salted peanuts on the steel blade of a food processor for approximately 2-1/2 minutes, stopping several times to scrape down sides of bowl. For a smoother texture, add 2 to 3 tbsp. oil. You can use any nuts except dry-roasted peanuts.

Chunky Peanut Butter:
Add 1/2 cup peanuts to peanut butter. Process 6 to 8 seconds longer.

Chocolate Peanut Butter:
Process 1-1/2 cups peanuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips for about 2-1/2 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

Poster's Notes:
I've demonstrated this recipe in many cooking classes over the years and my students love it. I hope your husband will enjoy your efforts! It's so easy and it should make him happy. It's best to store peanut butter in the refrigerator.
