Extra Special Nut Butter

Copycat recipe. That's all I'm going to divulge. Interpol is hot on my trail but I can pedal *fast* on this tricycle! You can roast your own almonds, peanuts and sunflower seeds for this recipe if desired. I made the recipe easier by using almond butter from the bulk bin at the natural food store and using up a surplus of homemade peanut butter my husband prepared. For the test recipe, I tried 88% cocoa dark chocolate bar from the Endangered Species' company and grated about one third of the bar or approximately one ounce. This is a copycat recipe so proportions are estimated. If you want the nut butter peanut-free, simply substitute with additional almond butter or a combination of almond butter and sunflower seeds.
