Really delicious! Use it anywhere you would normally use a store-bought sweetened hazelnut chocolate spread, such as on toasted whole grain bread, or on an apple slice (or, just eat it plain!).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups California walnut halves, lightly toasted
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (can be a tad more), semisweet
  • Scant 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar

Optional

  • 1/2-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • A touch of heavy cream, stirred in just before using

Preparation

  1. Combine everything in a food processor and whip until very smooth (or slightly textured, if you prefer).
  2. Transfer to a container with a lid, store at room temperature in a dark place.
  3. Use as desired, and if you like, stir in a few drops of cream just before serving, for added richness and best spreadability.
