Salted Chocolate Pecan Butter.

Last week I got some of Ashley’s famous nutbutters. Swoon.

Despite the army of ants that came along with the package, the spreads were incredible.

They put me in the nutbuttermaking mood. And a nutbutter-eating mood.

 

 

This is by far my most favorite flavor I have ever created.

Salt, chocolate, and pecan? Someone please just give me some caramel and let’s call it a turtle.

Oh…wait. I do have caramel sauce in my fridge. I don’t need to tell you what I did with that. All I know is that I’m gonna need a shoe horn to fit into my pants next week. And, in fact, my shoes.

The last thing I need to get bigger is my feet.

 

 

Doesn’t it almost look like ice cream?

Yeah, well it’s not.

It’s better. It’s healthy. Put it in a cone and start licking.

 

 

Salted Chocolate Pecan Butter

1 cup pecans

1 1/2 heaping tablespoons organic cocoa powder

2-3 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4-1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a food processor, add pecans and pulse until smooth. Add cocoa powder and pulse until combined. Drizzle in maple syrup until desired consistency is reached. Add sea salt 1/4 teaspoon at a time, tasting after each addition.

 

 

 

 

I literally had to tear my spoon-holding hand away from this just so I could snap the picture.

It is sweet and salty and smooth and buttery. Dig in!
