The idea sounds awesome. I tried it out, (with caramel flavored coffee) it was very bitter and uneatable. So i added more sugar, it didnt change anything :( any advises, i mean i'm reading the comments and thinking, why isnt working for me. HELP!!!

No two batches of coffee beans are the same depending when they were picked and how they were stored and processed. Coffee Arabica is my favorite beans. There are many different blends of coffee and sometimes the fancy aromas are a hit or a miss. Other reason why a mixture could taste aweful was if it reacted with the container it was sitting in. A metal bowl can oxidize and ruin the ingredients.

I like to drink hazelnut coffee a lot, I enjoy the creaminess of peanutbutter and together they make a powerful tango of deliciousness. And the contest added incentive to try something new with coffee.

This looks delicious and I'll be making up a batch soon. I wanted to ask though, why does the honey have to be crystalized? I ask because I have normal honey that isn't crystalized and would prefer honey over sugar.

Thank you Seventhc for this very interesting question! If you add liquid honey you coffee butter will be a little bit softer. I added crystalised honey for more texture (scratchy) and thicker. I guess I wanted to bite into my coffee mixture. :)

That has to be the simplest recipe I've ever seen. Sounds like a tasty way to get my coffee fix.

I was hoping you would say that. Simply delicious! Enjoy. :)

Ooo nice. But I wonder if instead of peanut butter since I'm not much of a peanut butter fan, if its possible to use almond butter or even make a mocha spread using Nutella? :)

perfect on graham crackers.....instant coffee works well.....and instead of sugar or honey, grind up some chocolate or chocolate chips into a fine grind. how is it? for the ladies: to-die-for. for the men: dude.

Oooh, what a yummmmy idea! I'm inspired to try different nut-butters... Walnut or almond maybe. Or hazelnut of course!

What a great way to get your coffee and breakfast in one on your way out the door in the morning :-)

I think the hazelnut is a great idea!

Just made this and it was very good. Something I would never have thought of doing. Thank you.

Starbucks Via should work quite well for this, as it is microground...

author
Eleventy (author)phazard2012-01-29

I second the Via. I don't trust my grinder to make it fine enough that the end result isn't grainy, and Starbucks Via is in a whole 'nother class of instant coffee (in that it is an acceptable substitute for coffee! :-) )

author
rmosby (author)Eleventy2012-01-29

I just did it with the Via. I tried 1 packet as a substitute for one tablespoon and it was very strong. Good. But strong. I think next time I will double the peanut butter and sugar.

Running off to try this right now...

Great to see this in print..... I make this myself... :) I love experimental food... LOL

Saw this and immediately had to make. Very interesting complex flavor. Kinda a "love - hate" thing. Kinda like smoked peanut butter....oooohhh wait...just finished last bite.....must make more.

Tried this a couple days ago, and it was promising enough to try again. I switched out the regular sugar for dark brown sugar and it worked beautifully. I experimented a little further and slowly melted one part of the mixture, one part heavy cream and one part dark chocolate together in a double boiler. Came out pretty smooth (like a loose peanut butter consistency) and used it as a filling between Nilla Wafers. Loved it - thanks for such a great idea to work with!

OH MY! This is something I never would have thought of myself but I'll use every day. Thanks a lot!
