1¼ cups unsalted peanuts
⅓ cup chopped dark chocolate or chips, melted (see Tip)
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Spread peanuts in a shallow baking dish. Bake, stirring once or twice, until fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor; add melted chocolate, maple syrup, oil, vanilla and salt. Process, stopping to scrape down the sides (and give your food processor a little rest) as needed, until smooth and creamy, at least 8 minutes and up to 10 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Store airtight at room temperature for up to 1 month.
To melt chocolate, microwave in a bowl on Medium (50%) for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium, stirring every 20 seconds, until melted.
