What Bracha does one make on peanut butter?

 

Since the actual peanut is not noticeable any more (in creamy peanut butter), its Bracha is She’hakol.

Even in chunky peanut butter, if the pieces were added to the mixture after the butter was made (as most probably this is the way of production) the Bracha follows the majority of the mixture, thus also chunky peanut butter is She’hakol (unless: 1. the pieces were not added at a later point, rather the peanuts were never fully crushed, or, 2. the pieces are more than the butter).
