A few nights ago I was testing out a fall-themed recipe, and ended up going to bed somewhere around 2:00 A.M. This isn’t uncommon for me… lately I’ve been spending my every waking moment working on blog posts, blog maintenance, or trying to be active on social media. This is in addition to my pays-the-bills day job.
Anyhow, I awoke the next morning feeling grumpy and craving chocolate. I ate my granola and tried to ignore that nagging feeling, but if you’re a chocolate lover you know that those cravings don’t just go away. By lunch time I had lost all willpower. I drove over to the grocery store, rushed home, and whipped up this recipe in no time.
The sweetness of the chocolate spread ,combined with the saltiness of the roasted almond butter, results in the ultimate craving-crushing snack. These would be great for after-school, mid-day at work, or (gasp!) even breakfast. Crescent rolls for breakfast. I’m just full of unique ideas tonight!
Since I’ve been talking about giving credit to the original source lately, I should mention where the inspiration for this ingredient combination came from. I had read an article on the Bon Appetit website where the rapper Eve talked about eating Nutella on toast with peanut butter and cinnamon, and thought it sounded tasty. When I tried it, I discovered it tastes like a peanut butter cup. YUM! I don’t eat peanut butter before I go to work though (because of allergy concerns) so I replaced it with almond butter (which actually washes off, unlike peanut proteins). And there you have it.
I hope you enjoy making these!
