Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a few weeks because I sent my foodie penpal Lindsay some this month and I wanted her to get a chance to sample it before I posted the recipe.  I’m super excited to get to share it today!

There’s a certain brand name of chocolate almond butter that I sometimes buy.  It’s delicious but it’s $10 for a jar so I don’t buy it often!  Here is my version of that, which is much much less expensive seeing that I typically always have these ingredients in my cupboard.  And it tastes exactly the same!

So move over chocolate and peanut butter… there’s a new match made in heaven- chocolate and almond butter!

P.S.  If you’ve never made your own nut butter before I suggest taking a peek at my almond butter tutorial before you start!

Ingredients:
2 cups raw almonds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I’m in love with the Guittard brand)

pinch of salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Pour almonds onto a baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Let almonds cool to room temperature and pour the almonds in a food processor and process until the almond butter just starts to come together(this will take a little while so be patient!).

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or in a small saucepan on the stove.

Add melted chocolate, vanilla, and salt and process until all ingredients are combined and almond butter is smooth in consistency.

    Looks amazing! I haven’t really jumped on the nut butter bandwagon, primarily because I’m scared of the deliciousness! This just may be the one I try though ;)
