Homemade Food Gifts: Chocolate Peppermint Peanut Butter

homemade food gift I love homemade food gifts because they are fun to make, unique and usually quite tasty!

Lately, I’ve been having lots of fun in the kitchen making peanut butter and trying new things.

The only thing (other than strong coffee) I love almost as much as chocolate and peanut butter? Peppermint!

All you need is 4 ingredients to make a delicious, beautiful homemade food gift (if you can stand to give it away!):

  • Peanuts
  • Dark chocolate chips
  • Peppermints
  • Peppermint extract

1.  Make your chocolate peanut butter. (see directions here)
