This was not even on my radar until I saw Fix & Fogg had made some. I foolishly bought a jar and that was it, hooked!
I wanted to see if I could make my own version, and had to go through a fair bit of trial and error to get there, but I present to you a pretty decent version.
Ideal for fussy eaters:
1. Any change from what a child normally eats is good
2. If you have a peanut butter eater, it’s a change
3. If you have a Nutella eater, it’s a change
4. If you have a child who likes chocolate, it’s worth a whirl
It has some sugar but also with a decent hit of protein, good fats and nutrients.
You can spread on toast or crackers or use as a dip to entice dipping and mixing.
(For small test amount)
1 heaped dessert sp of peanut butter (I used Fix & Fogg)
1 ½ dessert sp of cocoa powder (more for more chocolatly taste – I used a dark choc version)
1 desset sp of honey/maple syrup (this doesn’t make it very sweet – add more to taste)
1/8 cup milk (add more or less for required texture)
Place all in the blender or food processor and combine until smooth-ish.
Add more chco/milk/sweetener to taste
Will keep well in the fridge (unless it’s mine, because it gets eaten 😉)
