Vegan Chocolate Spread
A pure, rich, and sugar-free chocolate nut spread! The Vegan Chocolate Spread can be used in many ways, from smearing on bread to melting into a chewy Mochi for an exquisite texture.
It is a great vegan alternative to regular chocolate spreads made with milk products.
Preheat the oven to 165 °C
Place 1¼ cups of cashew nuts and 1½ cups of hazelnuts over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15m until lightly browned
Let the nuts cool down and peel the hazelnuts by rubbing them between your hands
Transfer all the nuts to a food processor
Add ½ tsp of salt and 2 tbsp of coconut oil. Blend until it forms a liquid paste
Fill ⅓ of a saucepan with water, bring it to a simmer over low heat, and place a bowl on top of it. Add 200 g of dark chocolate inside the bowl and stir with a spatula until it melts completely
Transfer the melted chocolate to another bowl, add the nut paste, and mix until completely homogeneous. The vegan chocolate spread is ready
Enjoy! This is great for eating with bread, fresh fruits or even turned into a mochi!
