|chocolate cashew butter|
Sometimes you need a little more chocolate in your diet. For example, when you accidentally get a mullet (Luckily this didn't happen to me) or when you are gearing up for a Dawson's creek marathon (Don't judge. Everyone needs a little teen angst every now and then), when your groomer shaves your bouviers except for their heads....they both look surprised) or when you're celebrating your summer vacation.
Chocolate Cashew Butter
1 C pitted dates
1/2 C cashew butter (or your favourite nut butter)
1/4 C ground cocoa nibs (or cocoa powder)
1. In a small saucepan cover dates with water. Cook at medium heat until water has been absorbed and the dates can be mixed into a thick paste.
2. In a medium bowl combine date paste, cashew butter, and cocoa nibs (if you prefer a smoother spread consider using blender).
3. Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator.
