- 2 Cups almonds
- 1/3 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ Teaspoon salt, plus additional for taste
Process the almonds in the food processor or until completely smooth, 10 to 15 minutes, scraping down the sides with a spatula as necessary.
Add the chocolate chips to the processor. The heat from the nuts and the motor will melt them perfectly.
Add the salt and process for another 2 minutes.
Add more salt as needed for taste.
