Almond and coconut chocolate spread


Almond Coconut chocolate spread

In my attempt to satisfy my chocolate cravings without gorging on the left over mud cake from MJ's party I whizzed this up to use as a dipping spread/ nut butter to enjoy with some fresh strawberries.

It can also be used to add a chocolate flavour to a smoothie or used as a spread on bread or apple slices.

I didn't want to burn my little blender out by blending for too long, but if you have a high powered blender you could let the mix blend for longer to get an even smoother, more spread-like consistency.

It's a sweet and simple spread handy to keep in the cupboard to satisfy those 3.00pm chocolate cravings!
