  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (6 ounces; 170 grams)
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (4 3/4 ounces; 134 grams)
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter (4 tablespoons; 2 ounces)
  • salt, to taste


  1. In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Turn on heat to low. This is important. You need to treat this sauce gently or it might scorch. Stir with a wooden spoon or heat resistant spatula until ingredients are melted and smooth. Sauce should be shiny. Add salt to taste. 

  2. Pour sauce into a small jam jar. Allow to cool. Sauce will harden.
  3. To serve warm: remove desired amount of sauce from jar. Place in a small bowl. Warm in microwave on low setting for 30 seconds. Stir. Return to microwave if sauce isn't warm.
  4. Store sauce in the refrigerator for up to one month.
