Almond - ella Chocolate Spread


Who does not love nutella? I do love it ! Nutella has hazelnuts and this is very expensive to use. I have found an healthy, easy and inexpensive way to make your own Almond - ella at home. I always make small quantity since this takes hardly any time to make. You can have a fresh jar at home very often.

Ingredients

1 Cup Almonds - lightly roasted
1 Tablespoon Oil
1 Cup heaped Dark Chocolate - finely chopped
A pinch of salt
1 Teaspoon cocoa powder - optional
A drop or two of Chocolate essence

Method

Add almonds to food processor or a small mixer jar and process for 10 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. At this point the almonds should start to clump together. Continue to process by adding the oil until you reach a liquid like consistency. Melt chocolate in small saucepan over very low heat. Stir consistently until completely melted and smooth. Add chocolate, cocoa powder, essence and salt to almond butter and process again until smooth. Transfer to jar or container and store at room temperature or in fridge. If you store at room temp, simply give the almond butter a stir before you use it. 



I hope you enjoy this homemade almond- ella. I been dipping strawberries, bananas in it and also spreading it on my rotis !  Yum ...m....y.
