Homemade Chocolate Spread


Homemade Chocolate Spread

Do your children say they don’t like sweets yet wade through a bottle of Nutella like 1 bottle a week?  I find that too expensive so I was happy when I saw this Homemade Chocolate Spread at Julie's place. This I had to make.

The girls gave me mixed reaction the elder one did not mind it the younger one did not like it so did not eat it much. But if she runs true to her form then she will finish the bottle as we reach the bottom of the jar!!

I used dark chocolate but you can use semi-sweet chocolate too.

Method:
Make Almond Butter:
  • Put the almonds in a chutney jar of the blender.
  • Grind until smooth, the jar will be hot stop the mixer and let it cool.
  • Scrape the sides of the jar and run the blender/grinder more till the almonds give out oil and starts to come together.
  • When you can no longer blend it add the oil as required little by little.
  • Blend again until you get a smooth finish. This is Almond butter.
