chocolate chunk almond butter

I'm a little embarrassed to say that when I made this the other day it lasted an entire two days and I am the only one who ate it.  It is super addicting.  I tried to make myself feel better by justifying that almonds are good for you and dark chocolate has health benefits too, but I still felt pretty guilty eating this much almond butter over a span of 48 hours.  Oh well.  So you should make this eat in 2 days or less then tell me about it so I feel better.  Please, pretty please!

Apples with almond butter is one of my all time favorite snacks and chocolate {especially dark!} is a weakness of mine, so combine almond butter with chocolate and I am weak in the knees.  I knew the combination would be incredible but I didn't expect it to be this good.  Seriously, you must try this now!  If you have never made you own almond butter it is time to start and you should definitely start with this one.

I mostly enjoyed this almond butter with some honey crisp apples but one day I took an extra step and tossed the apples and almond butter into a paleo coconut flour crepe and warmed them over medium heat on the stove and was instantly taken to foodie heaven.  The chocolate melted over the apples and the warm almond butter clung to the sweet apples making an unbelievable dessert.  I was taken back 11 years to when I was first introduced to crepes in an amazing French market.  Oh boy, now I really want to go back to France.  If you have never had a crepe, you should give it a try, especially if you happen to be in France.  Your life will never be the same.
