Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

For those of us who love Nutella, this is my own attempt....but I used almonds instead of hazelnuts because of the cost difference!   Hazelnuts....$13.99/lb       Almonds...$3.99/lb  The taste is not exactly the same but it is still very tasty!

Dark Chocolate Almond Butter
2 c raw, skinless almonds
1 c dark chocolate chips, melted
1 tsp canola oil
1/8 tsp sea salt

Place almonds in the food processor.  Process until very smooth and creamy. scraping the dish often.  It took me about 13-14 minutes to get to a very smooth consistency.  Slowly pour the melted chocolate in the processor, as it is slowly processing.  Beat till very smooth.  Add oil and sea salt.  Process again for about one more minute.  Put butter in an airtight container.  Serve on animal crackers or other cookie, cracker or toast!!
