Useful tips for Chocolate almond butter
This recipe is pretty straight forward. It’s similar to peanut butter or walnut butter with a Vitamix.
But since almonds are a bit dryer, naturally, you’ll need a tiny bit of oil to get the best result.
Buy raw unsalted almonds and then roast them in a single layer.
This stuff is good on anything, we recommend pretzel sticks.
If you're feeling really crafty, you can make these campfire cookies and use your almond butter as the base. (That's colored shredded coconut in the middle).

We used a 32 ounce wet. Either container works fine for nut butters.

Well I will use 64 ounce wet container, I don’t have wet 32 ounces. I received as gift 32 DRY container.
Did you used WET or DRY container for making this gorgeous treat ? 🙂
