Chocolate Almond Butter
Serve this wonderful chocolate almond butter with scones, croissants or toast. This delicious butter also makes a lovely homemade gift, especially when presented in ceramic containers or glass jars decorated with raffia or pretty ribbons.
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon Amaretto liqueur
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup blanched almonds, toasted lightly and chopped
- In a small metal bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water melt chocolate with sugar and Amaretto while stirring. Cool mixture to room temperature.
