Chocolate Peanut Butter Pate – perfect homemade candy for the Christmas holidays or any time. Great addition to your dessert and cookie trays.

I know that most people think of Christmas as prime cookie baking time. But for our family, holiday treats are all about homemade candies. Peanut brittle, divinity, date nut chews, haystacks, toffee, and those kinds of treats.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Paté - perfect homemade candy for the holidays or any time! https://www.lanascooking.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-pate

When I started making my list of holiday candy for this year, I happened to remember old-fashioned peanut butter balls. Deliciously crunchy little balls of sugar, peanut butter, and rice crispies. Yum! I haven’t made those in years! I had everything on hand to make a batch, so I headed for the kitchen. However, somewhere along the way, those peanut butter balls turned into something else altogether.

Once I started, I decided I wanted some chocolate. Then I also wanted some coconut. Then I didn’t really want to stand there making 5 dozen little bitty balls. So what was originally peanut butter balls turned into Chocolate Peanut Butter Paté.

Why paté? Because when I cut into the roll, it looked for all the world like paté! So, I thought why not – let’s just call it what it looks like.

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Paté

Cooking sugar and syrup in a saucepan.

In a large saucepan, over medium heat, cook the sugar and syrups, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely melted and the mixture is boiling. Continue cooking for 1 minute.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the peanut butter stirring until fully combined with sugar mixture. Add the rice cereal, coconut, chocolate chips, and salt. Mix well.

Mixture turned out onto wax paper.

Turn the mixture out onto waxed paper.

Shaping the mixture into a roll.

Use your hands to shape the mixture into a roll. Wrap tightly in the waxed paper and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

Slice the roll into 1/2” pieces. Dust with powdered sugar.
