All ingredients are approximations, adjust sweetener and cocoa powder to taste. This recipe works with almond butter too.
1/2 cup *hazelnut butter (or almond butter)
1-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1-2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
1. Place hazelnut butter in a shallow bowl.
2. Add cocoa powder and mix it into the nut butter with a fork.
3. Mix in honey or maple syrup. Taste and adjust seasonings. If you need to thin the mixture, add hazelnut oil, walnut oil, or coconut oil (warmed to liquid consistency).
*To make your own hazlenut butter, toast hazelnuts on a cookie sheet in a 400 degrees oven for about 10 minutes. Remove as much of the nut skins as possible in a damp towel, add to a food processor and process into a paste.
