Ingredients 1 cup (150 g/5.3 oz) hazelnuts 1 cup (130 g/4.6 oz) macadamia nuts ½ cup (75 g/2.6 oz) almonds 1 bar (100 g/3.5 oz) extra-dark chocolate, 85 percent cacao or more 1 tablespoon (15 g/0.5 oz) coconut oil 1 tablespoon (5 g/0.2 oz) unsweetened cacao powder 1 teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract or ½ teaspoon vanilla powder 2 tablespoons (20 g/0.7 oz) powdered erythritol (see Tip) or Swerve Few drops liquid stevia, to taste (optional) ½ cup (120 ml/4 ? oz) coconut milk or heavy whipping cream (optional) Instructions Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C, or gas mark 5). Spread the hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, and almonds on a baking sheet. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the nuts from the oven and cool for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler, or heatproof bowl placed over a small pot ?lled with 1 cup of boiling water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Stir until melted. Rub the hazelnuts together in your hands to remove the skins. This makes the butter smooth and avoids the bitter taste imparted by the skins. Place all of the nuts into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add the cacao powder, vanilla, erythritol or Swerve, and stevia (if using) to the melted chocolate. Pour the mixture into the processor with the nuts and pulse until smooth. If you’re using coconut milk, add it to the processor and pulse again. Transfer the butter to a glass container. Seal and refrigerate for up to 4 weeks if using coconut milk or 1 week using cream.
