Choco-Braz Butter

Over the last few weeks, I’ve moved away from eating plain Brazil nuts and developed an unhealthy obsession with chocolate covered Brazil nuts! They’re too good!! Worse still, when I was eating raw Brazils two or three would satisfy me – now I can’t sit still until the packet is gone!!

This morning I came across 3 bags of raw Brazils and decided it was time to create an alternative.

Ingredients:

400g Brazil nuts
2 tbsp Cacoa powder
2 tbsp Honey
1/2 tbsp Vanilla essence

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°c/392°F.
  2. Place the nuts on a baking tray and roast for 5 minutes.photo 1 (12)
  3. Remove nuts from the oven and place in the food processor for 10-15 mins – regularly scraping the mixture from the sides with the spatula.photo 3 (11)
  4. When the butter reaches a smooth consistency add the remaining ingredients and blend for a further 5 minutes.photo 4 (9)
  5. Allow to cool – add the mixture to the jar and enjoy 🙂photo 5 (8)
