Is there anything more satisfying than tea and toast? The answer is no, and if you say sex you are wrong tea and toast is better, let’s face it sometimes no matter how much love we have for our partner we are just too tired or not in the mood but I have never not been in the mood for tea and toast.
Moving on. Is there anything in the world more versatile that toast? The answer is no, you can put anything on toast from lavish topping to mayonnaise, perhaps the later is just me.
Living in Paris and being somewhat addicted to street crepes I have eaten my fair share of Nutella so I was sick to the stomach when the image of the separate ingredients did the rounds online. When my little boy asked for chocolate spread I was loathed to give him Nutella so I created my own nutty chocolate spread with what we had in.
you will need;
1tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
2cups whole cashew nuts
2 cups whole pecan nuts
1 cup flaked almonds
1tbsp cacao nibs
- put the nuts into a food processor and pulse until a smooth butter. This will happen trust me without adding anything else into the mix. I do not have an amazing food processor so I ran it in bursts as I was worried it might overheat.
- Once the nut butter is in fact butter transfer to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
This will keep for a couple of months in an airtight container. The mixture is not as wet as Nutella and it is because I added powder to it. You could add additional nut oil to it, I might try that next time and see. The spread is delicious and the nibs add some bite. What better way to treat toast, possibly the worlds greatest food than with a super fancy incredibly tasty chocolate nut butter.
